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 series, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i household. “The iR models substitute the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the necessities of our high-end analysis prospects – similar to the most important analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product manager, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible distant operation from 3 meters to distances of one kilometre. In all aspects the products had been additionally designed to resist the challenges which are present in environments with high to very high ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide particular cable lengths of as a lot as 200 meters, and likewise the option for the customers to use their very own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions had been developed using the present materials information of the research community: As a result, the supplies they contain have radiation tolerances of up to 1 million grays (Gy).
In mixture with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so known as ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them other than standard market models, which are assembly the market requirements however not specifically those wanted for the actual conditions encountered in analysis facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product sequence: on the one hand, they have been developed for the special requirements relating to cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we are in a position to offer the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers can’t offer as a bundle,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits perfectly nicely within the TURBOVAC i eco systems as different merchandise such as equipment or the software program LeyAssist can be utilized as well.
The bottom line is that the brand new iR models are designed to meet the technical requirements of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for purposes corresponding to synchrotrons (particle accelerators), cyclotrons (circular accelerators), linear accelerators and free-electron lasers. “In these areas, customers can take away the electronics and place them in areas
where they aren’t uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary situation in these software areas is the absolute purity of the pump: this core requirement is fulfilled by the oil-free operation of the bearing system of the model new TURBOVAC iR collection. The TURBOVAC iR also supports all related communication choices of the TURBOVAC I, USB, 15-pin digital I/O and all serial and fieldbus choices of the TURBO.DRIVE 500e. ตัววัดแรงดันน้ำ : The built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller mechanically recognizes the pump model and instantly adjusts to the precise working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range completely 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 range of supporting controllers and cable choices to satisfy buyer needs for
additional 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 comply with within the third quarter of 2022 along with the more highly effective controller option to comprehend even longer cable lengths.
