Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model series for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a model new, complete turbomolecular pump collection, technologically derived from the confirmed TURBOVAC i household. “The iR models exchange the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the requirements of our high-end research customers – such as the major research institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the accountable product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible remote operation from three meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In ร้านซ่อมเครื่องวัดความดันomron had been also designed to withstand the challenges which are current in environments with high to very high ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide particular cable lengths of up to 200 meters, and in addition the choice for the customers to make use of their own cables,” explains product supervisor Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions had been developed utilizing the present material data of the analysis group: As a result, the materials they contain have radiation tolerances of up to 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 standard market fashions, that are meeting the market necessities but not specifically these wanted for the particular circumstances encountered in research facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product series: on the one hand, they were developed for the particular necessities regarding cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can supply the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers can’t provide as a package deal,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits completely properly in the TURBOVAC i eco techniques as other products corresponding to equipment or the software LeyAssist can be utilized as properly.
The backside line is that the model new iR fashions are designed to fulfill the technical requirements of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for purposes such as 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 aren’t exposed to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary condition in these application areas is the absolute purity of the pump: this core requirement is fulfilled by the oil-free operation of the bearing system of the brand new TURBOVAC iR collection. The TURBOVAC iR additionally helps 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 advantage: The built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller routinely recognizes the pump model and immediately adjusts to the specific working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary fully covers all existing members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively broaden the accessories vary of supporting controllers and cable choices to meet buyer needs for
further cable lengths and intelligent solutions. The intelligent 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 highly effective controller choice to understand even longer cable lengths.
