Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model series for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a model new, full turbomolecular pump series, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i family. “The iR fashions replace the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the necessities of our high-end research prospects – similar to the major analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible remote operation from three meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In all features the products have been also designed to resist the challenges that are current in environments with high to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer special cable lengths of as much as 200 meters, and likewise the option for the users to use their very own cables,” explains product supervisor Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions have been developed utilizing the existing material information of the research neighborhood: As a end result, the materials they contain have radiation tolerances of as a lot as 1 million grays (Gy).
In เกจวัดแรงดันไนโตรเจน with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so known as ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them apart from standard market fashions, which are assembly the market necessities however not particularly those needed for the actual circumstances encountered in research centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product sequence: on the one hand, they were developed for the special necessities relating to cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we are ready to supply the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers cannot provide as a package,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR fits perfectly properly in the TURBOVAC i eco systems as different products such as equipment or the software LeyAssist may be utilized as nicely.
The bottom line is that the new iR models are designed to fulfill the technical requirements of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for functions similar to synchrotrons (particle accelerators), cyclotrons (circular accelerators), linear accelerators and free-electron lasers. “In these areas, customers can take away the electronics and place them in areas
where they are not exposed to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary situation in these software areas is the absolute purity of the pump: this core requirement is fulfilled by the oil-free operation of the bearing system of the new TURBOVAC iR series. The TURBOVAC iR also supports all relevant 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 operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary fully covers all current members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from 90 to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively expand the accessories vary of supporting controllers and cable choices to fulfill customer needs for
extra cable lengths and intelligent solutions. The clever Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been released in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will observe in the third quarter of 2022 together with the extra powerful controller possibility to realize even longer cable lengths.
