EARLIER YEARS OF THE COMPANY
Carl von Lindes curiosity as an inventor, his persistence in the implementation of his
ideas and theoretical concepts, as well as his ability to recognise the requirements of his
customers and fulfil their desire for reliability and quality are all timeless factors for success.
At a sometimes staggering pace and with a great love of experimentation, Carl von Linde
created a new industry within just a few decades: refrigeration. His engineering company, the
Gesellschaft fr Lindes Eismaschinen, was characterized from the very beginning by
innovativeness and close customer relations.

Sketches and notes from Carl von Lindes early lecture drafts when he served as an instructor (1868-1879) at the
Polytechnic School in Munich (today TU Munich).

The thought immediately struck me: here was an area of mechanical thermodynamics that had not yet been
fully explored,

PROCESS
Air is separated into its component gases through cryogenic system. (Temp = 0 - 72 K)
Main Stages of air separation includes:
- Filtration of air
- Compression of air
- Cooling of air
- Pre-purification of air mixture (Activated alumina)
- Heat exchanger
- Liquefaction of cooled gas
- Separation of air into Oxygen and Nitrogen
- Obtaining pure Oxygen and nitrogen
Raw Material and Products
Raw material is ambient air
Intermediate products:
- pure gaseous oxygen
- gaseous nitrogen
- gaseous argon
- gaseous hydrogen
Finished (final) products:
- liquid nitrogen
- liquid oxygen
- crude liquid argon
- pure liquid argon

Cryogenic air separation process for the production of gaseous pure oxygen and nitrogen with internal compression
and the production of liquid oxygen, liquid nitrogen and liquid argon
