Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model sequence for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a brand new, full turbomolecular pump series, technologically derived from the confirmed TURBOVAC i family. “The iR fashions replace the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the requirements of our high-end analysis customers – such as the major research institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible distant operation from 3 meters to distances of one kilometre. In all features the products had been additionally designed to withstand the challenges which are present in environments with excessive to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide particular cable lengths of as much as 200 meters, and likewise the choice for the users to make use of their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions had been developed utilizing the prevailing materials information of the research neighborhood: As a outcome, the materials they comprise have radiation tolerances of up to 1 million grays (Gy).
In เกจวัดแรงดันต่ำ with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so referred to as ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them apart from standard market models, which are assembly the market requirements but not specifically these needed for the actual conditions encountered in research facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product series: on the one hand, they had been developed for the particular requirements relating to cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we are ready to supply the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers cannot provide as a package,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR matches completely properly in the TURBOVAC i eco systems as different merchandise such as accessories or the software LeyAssist may be utilized as well.
The backside line is that the brand new iR fashions are designed to fulfill the technical necessities of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for purposes similar to 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 don’t appear to be 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 new TURBOVAC iR sequence. The TURBOVAC iR additionally helps all related communication options 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 mechanically recognizes the pump model and immediately adjusts to the particular operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary fully covers all existing members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from 90 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 options. The clever Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been launched 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 option to understand even longer cable lengths.
