Design a Linde process to liquefy oxygen. Pure oxygen is supplied at 1 bar, 25 °C and liquid oxygen is received at 1 bar. The fluid is compressed to 150 bar in a series of compressors whose efficiency is 80%. Precooling is done by water at 20 °C. Compression in done in stages with intercooling, to maximum temperature of 200 °C. Perform the energy balance and a second-law analysis of the process.
