Pacific Heat is an animated comedy series based on the exploits of a dynamic unit of undercover police investigators. Set on the glitzy Gold Coast where sun and surf meets soaring crime rates,
The Gold Coast. Glamorous, sophisticated, a sun-drenched paradise. But beneath the coconut oil lies a hot-bed of crime. Everyone from drug smugglers and bikie gangs to radical eco-extremists and the person who invented frozen yoghurt. In order to tackle this seedy underbelly police authorities established a special unit. Known as "Pacific Heat", this covert squad of highly trained operatives technically does not exist (although, for tax purposes, they do have an A.B.N.) but when there's a crime that simply must be solved the ‘Pac Heat' team will be there. Unconventional, uncompromising and with an arrest rate second to none, these guys are not afraid to operate outside the law – provided at least one of them is wearing a fluorescent safety vest.
Runtime: 30 minutes
Pacific Heat - Heat pump - Netflix
A heat pump is a device that transfers heat energy from a source of heat to what is called a “heat sink”. Heat pumps move thermal energy in the opposite direction of spontaneous heat transfer, by absorbing heat from a cold space and releasing it to a warmer one. A heat pump uses a small amount of external power to accomplish the work of transferring energy from the heat source to the heat sink. While air conditioners and freezers are familiar examples of heat pumps, the term “heat pump” is more general and applies to many HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) devices used for space heating or space cooling. When a heat pump is used for heating, it employs the same basic refrigeration-type cycle used by an air conditioner or a refrigerator, but in the opposite direction – releasing heat into the conditioned space rather than the surrounding environment. In this use, heat pumps generally draw heat from the cooler external air or from the ground. In heating mode, heat pumps are three to four times more effective at heating than simple electrical resistance heaters using the same amount of electricity. However, the typical cost of installing a heat pump is also higher than that of a resistance heater.
Pacific Heat - Magnetic - Netflix
In 1881, the German physicist Emil Warburg put a block of iron into a strong magnetic field and found that it increased very slightly in temperature. Some commercial ventures to implement this technology are underway, claiming to cut energy consumption by 40% compared to current domestic refrigerators. The process works as follows: Powdered gadolinium is moved into a magnetic field, heating the material by 2 to 5 °C (4 to 9 °F). The heat is removed by a circulating fluid. The material is then moved out of the magnetic field, reducing its temperature below its starting temperature.
