Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model collection for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum producer Leybold is launching a new, full turbomolecular pump collection, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i family. “ digital pressure gauge substitute the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the requirements of our high-end analysis prospects – similar to the major analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product manager, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, ไดอะแฟรม was designed for versatile remote operation from 3 meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In all aspects the merchandise had been additionally designed to resist the challenges that are present in environments with excessive to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer special cable lengths of up to 200 meters, and also the choice for the customers to make use of their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR models had been developed utilizing the present material information of the analysis group: As a result, the materials they contain have radiation tolerances of as much as 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 other than normal market models, that are meeting the market requirements but not particularly those needed for the particular conditions encountered in analysis facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is completely different with the TURBOVAC iR product series: on the one hand, they had been developed for the special necessities concerning cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers can’t supply as a bundle,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR matches perfectly well in the TURBOVAC i eco techniques as other merchandise similar to equipment or the software program LeyAssist can be utilized as properly.
The backside line is that the model new iR models are designed to fulfill the technical requirements 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, customers can remove the electronics and place them in areas

where they aren’t exposed to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary condition in these software 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 collection. 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. เพรสเชอร์เกจ : The built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller routinely acknowledges the pump mannequin and immediately adjusts to the particular working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range completely covers all current members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively increase the equipment vary of supporting controllers and cable options to satisfy buyer wants for

extra 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 in the third quarter of 2022 along with the more highly effective controller possibility to comprehend even longer cable lengths.
