Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model series for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a new, full 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 research customers – such as the most important analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for versatile distant operation from 3 meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In all elements the merchandise were additionally designed to withstand the challenges which are current in environments with excessive to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer particular cable lengths of as a lot as 200 meters, and in addition the option for the users to use their very own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions had been developed utilizing the existing materials data of the analysis neighborhood: 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 commonplace market fashions, that are assembly the market necessities however not particularly these wanted for the particular circumstances encountered in analysis facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. ราคาเกจวัดแรงดัน is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product sequence: on the one hand, they have been developed for the particular necessities relating to cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we are in a position to provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers can’t provide as a bundle,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits completely properly in the TURBOVAC i eco techniques as other merchandise such as equipment or the software LeyAssist could be utilized as properly.
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 applications corresponding 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 are not uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary condition 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 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 options of the TURBO.DRIVE 500e. Another benefit: The integrated, new TURBO.DRIVE controller automatically recognizes the pump mannequin and immediately adjusts to the particular operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range completely covers all current members of the TURBOVAC i household with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively expand the accessories vary of supporting controllers and cable options to meet customer wants for
further cable lengths and intelligent options. The intelligent Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been released in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will follow within the third quarter of 2022 along with the more highly effective controller choice to understand even longer cable lengths.
