The 1895 cycle.

The Hampson–Linde cycle is based on the Joule-Thomson effect and is used in the liquefaction of gases, especially for air separation. William Hampson and Carl von Linde independently filed for patent of the cycle in 1895.[1]

Similar to the Siemens cycle, this technique utilizes the temperature changes induced by compression and decompression of a gas according to Gay-Lussac's law.[1]
