Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model sequence for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum producer Leybold is launching a new, complete turbomolecular pump sequence, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i family. “The iR fashions substitute the former TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the requirements of our high-end analysis clients – similar to the main 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 merchandise had been also designed to resist the challenges that are current in environments with excessive to very high ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer particular cable lengths of up to 200 meters, and likewise the option for the users to make use of their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to หลักการทำงานของเกจ์วัดแก๊ส , the iR fashions have been developed utilizing the present materials knowledge of the analysis group: As a end result, the materials they include have radiation tolerances of as a lot as 1 million grays (Gy).
In mixture with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so called ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them other than normal market models, that are assembly the market requirements however not specifically these needed for the actual circumstances encountered in analysis centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product series: on the one hand, they had been developed for the particular necessities regarding cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we are in a position to provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers can not provide as a package,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR fits perfectly well in the TURBOVAC i eco techniques as other products similar to equipment or the software LeyAssist may be utilized as well.
The bottom line is that the new iR fashions are designed to meet the technical necessities of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for applications such as 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
the place they are not uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary situation 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 collection. The TURBOVAC iR additionally 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 routinely recognizes the pump mannequin and immediately adjusts to the precise working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range utterly covers all current members of the TURBOVAC i household 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 buyer needs for
extra cable lengths and clever options. The intelligent Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been released in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will comply with within the third quarter of 2022 together with the more powerful controller possibility to understand even longer cable lengths.
Applications at a look:
