Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR mannequin series for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum producer Leybold is launching a new, complete turbomolecular pump sequence, technologically derived from the confirmed TURBOVAC i household. “The iR fashions substitute the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the necessities of our high-end analysis clients – such as the main analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product manager, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible remote operation from three meters to distances of one kilometre. In all aspects the merchandise were also designed to resist the challenges that are present in environments with excessive to very high ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer special cable lengths of as a lot as 200 meters, and likewise the choice for the customers to make use of their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions have been developed using the prevailing materials knowledge of the analysis group: As a end result, the materials they include have radiation tolerances of as much as 1 million grays (Gy).
In mixture with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so known as ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them aside from normal market fashions, which are meeting the market necessities however not particularly those wanted for the actual situations encountered in analysis facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they had been developed for the particular requirements concerning cable size and radiation tolerance. “In pressure gauge ลม , we will offer the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers can not supply as a bundle,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits completely nicely within the TURBOVAC i eco methods as other products similar to accessories or the software LeyAssist may be utilized as nicely.
The bottom line is that the new iR models are designed to meet the technical necessities of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for purposes such as synchrotrons (particle accelerators), cyclotrons (circular accelerators), linear accelerators and free-electron lasers. “In these areas, users can take away the electronics and place them in areas
where they are not uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary condition in these application areas is completely the purity of the pump: this core requirement is fulfilled by the oil-free operation of the bearing system of the model new TURBOVAC iR sequence. The TURBOVAC iR also supports all relevant communication choices of the TURBOVAC I, USB, 15-pin digital I/O and all serial and fieldbus options of the TURBO.DRIVE 500e. Another benefit: The built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller mechanically acknowledges the pump model and instantly adjusts to the precise working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary utterly covers all existing members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively increase the equipment range of supporting controllers and cable options to meet buyer needs for
additional cable lengths and intelligent options. The clever Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been released in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will comply with in the third quarter of 2022 along with the extra highly effective controller choice to realize even longer cable lengths.
