Summary: Air, an important industrial raw material, is first filtered to remove any solid matter. Then its constituent gases-nitrogen, oxygen, and other trace gases-can be separated by compressing the air, cooling it, and then allowing it to expand, which cools it further. Since each gas liquefies at a different temperature, the gases can easily be separated. As the air expands, it is used to drive...
