Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR mannequin collection for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a model new, complete turbomolecular pump series, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i household. “The iR models replace the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the necessities of our high-end analysis clients – corresponding to the major research institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product manager, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for versatile distant operation from 3 meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In เกจวัดแรงดันลม were additionally designed to withstand the challenges that are current in environments with excessive to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer particular cable lengths of up to 200 meters, and also the option for the users to make use of their own cables,” explains product supervisor Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR models had been developed using the present material data of the research community: As a end result, the supplies they include have radiation tolerances of as much as 1 million grays (Gy).
In mixture with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so referred to as ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them aside from normal market models, that are assembly the market necessities but not particularly those wanted for the particular conditions encountered in analysis facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product series: on the one hand, they were developed for the particular requirements relating to cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers cannot supply as a bundle,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR matches completely nicely within the TURBOVAC i eco methods as different products such as equipment or the software LeyAssist may be utilized as properly.
The backside line is that the new iR models are designed to meet the technical necessities 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, customers can remove the electronics and place them in areas

where they aren’t uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary situation 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 supports all related 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 automatically acknowledges the pump model and instantly adjusts to the particular working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range fully covers all present members of the TURBOVAC i household with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively broaden the accessories range of supporting controllers and cable options to satisfy buyer wants for

further cable lengths and clever options. The intelligent Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been launched in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will observe within the third quarter of 2022 together with the more powerful controller possibility to realize even longer cable lengths.
