As of 1910, Linde moved back as a director since its hugely successful public company and handed it to his sons Richard and Frederick. The world economic crisis of 1929, said the Linde AG has a strong impact, but the company recovered and profits began to rise again before Linde 1934 at the age of 92 years died. Carl von Linde was buried in the old part of the forest cemetery in Munich in grave No. 139-W-9b.
The Linde process is developed by Carl von Linde technical method for the liquefaction of air. Intake air is compressed, the resulting heat is dissipated by water cooling. Then, the air is again released, and it cools due to the Joule-Thomson effect. At a pressure gradient of 200 bar to 20 is a cooling of about 45 Kelvin. This cooled air is cooled in a counterflow heat exchanger nachkommende compacted before air which precools the next nachkommende air. The continuous repetition leads to a progressive decrease in temperature, which eventually drops below its boiling point of liquefying air result. Using the same method can also be liquefied hydrogen and helium Whynter SNO Ice Cream Maker, these gases must be pre-cooled with liquid air.
An important factor in the production presented the hydropower dar. So you built there early on a turbine for hydroelectric power stations to use the energy for production. The 1950s-era hydroelectric power plant was replaced by a new, replaced in 2010 which went into operation at the hydroelectric plant Keselstraße.
