Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model series for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a brand new, complete turbomolecular pump sequence, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i family. “The iR models substitute the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the necessities of our high-end research clients – such as the main research institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the accountable product manager, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for versatile remote operation from three meters to distances of one kilometre. In all features the products have 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 as much as 200 meters, and also the option for the users to use their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions were developed using the present material information of the research group: As a outcome, the supplies they include have radiation tolerances of up to 1 million grays (Gy).
In mixture with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so called ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them other than normal market models, that are meeting the market necessities but not particularly those wanted for the particular conditions encountered in research facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they had been developed for the particular necessities regarding cable length and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers can not provide as a package,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR fits completely well in the TURBOVAC i eco systems as other products such as accessories or the software program LeyAssist may be utilized as well.
The bottom line is that the brand new iR models are designed to satisfy 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 exposed 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 new TURBOVAC iR series. The TURBOVAC iR additionally helps all relevant communication choices of the TURBOVAC I, USB, 15-pin digital I/O and all serial and fieldbus choices of the TURBO.DRIVE 500e. ตัววัดแรงดันน้ำมัน : The integrated, new TURBO.DRIVE controller mechanically acknowledges the pump mannequin and instantly adjusts to the precise operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary completely covers all current members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from 90 to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively increase the equipment range of supporting controllers and cable choices to satisfy buyer needs for
extra cable lengths and clever solutions. The intelligent Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been launched 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 possibility to understand even longer cable lengths.
