German refrigeration engineer.
[br]
He was educated at the Zurich Polytechnic, with Clausius being among his lecturers. He spent some time at a locomotive works and in 1868 went on to teach at the Munich Polytechnic. He became a director of a refrigeration company, where he was employed from 1879 until 1892, during which time he took out many patents in refrigeration technology. Among these was one for the ammonia compressor in 1876; this was probably the most important. His interests turned again to research and he went to the Munich Technische Hochschule, where he worked on the liquefaction of gases, including air. He designed plant for the liquefaction of air on a commercial scale, establishing the successful foundation of a whole new industry.
