Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model series for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a new, complete turbomolecular pump sequence, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i family. “ เกจวัดแรงดันแก๊สco2 substitute the former TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the requirements of our high-end research customers – corresponding to the main research institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product manager, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible distant operation from 3 meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In all features the products have been additionally designed to withstand the challenges which are present in environments with high to very high ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer particular cable lengths of up to 200 meters, and also the option for the customers to make use of their own cables,” explains product supervisor Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions had been developed using the present materials data of the analysis neighborhood: As a result, the materials they comprise have radiation tolerances of up to 1 million grays (Gy).
In combination with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so known as ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them aside from standard market models, that are meeting the market requirements but not specifically these wanted for the actual conditions encountered in research facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product sequence: on the one hand, they have been developed for the special requirements concerning cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we will provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers can’t offer as a bundle,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR matches perfectly well in the TURBOVAC i eco systems as different merchandise such as equipment or the software LeyAssist may be utilized as properly.
The bottom line is that the model new iR models are designed to fulfill the technical necessities of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for functions such as synchrotrons (particle accelerators), cyclotrons (circular accelerators), linear accelerators and free-electron lasers. “In these areas, customers can remove the electronics and place them in areas
the place they aren’t exposed to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary condition in these utility areas is the absolute purity of the pump: this core requirement is fulfilled by the oil-free operation of the bearing system of the model new TURBOVAC iR series. The TURBOVAC iR also supports all related communication choices of the TURBOVAC I, USB, 15-pin digital I/O and all serial and fieldbus choices of the TURBO.DRIVE 500e. Another advantage: The built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller routinely recognizes the pump model and immediately adjusts to the particular working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range utterly covers all existing members of the TURBOVAC i household with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively broaden the accessories vary of supporting controllers and cable choices to satisfy customer needs for
further cable lengths and intelligent solutions. The clever Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been launched in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will observe within the third quarter of 2022 together with the extra powerful controller choice to understand even longer cable lengths.
