German term or phrase: Kaltdampfprozeß
context: thermodynamic principles underlying air conditioning systems
Der Carnotprozeß
Eine Kfz-Klimaanlage arbeitet nach dem Prinzip des Kaltdampfprozesses, den der Münchener Physiker Carl von Linde 1876 entdeckt hat, dem ein linklsläufiger Carnot-Prozeß, der aber praktisch nicht realisierbar ist, als Vergleichsprozeß zugrunde gelegt werden kann.

I haven't been able to find anything on Carl von Linde except that his invention of refrigeration aided the brewing industry. Is this process he discovered basically just vapour compression, or does anyone know its "official" name?

cold vapour process


Explanation:
Carl von Linde succeeded in cooling air to the liquid state and separate its components on the basis of their different boiling points.

Cold vapour process refers to the process of vapour compression with the resulting low temperature.
