Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model series for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum producer Leybold is launching a model new, full turbomolecular pump sequence, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i family. “The iR models replace the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the necessities of our high-end analysis clients – similar to 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 one kilometre. In all features the merchandise were additionally designed to withstand the challenges that 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 choice for the users to use their very own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR models had been developed using the prevailing material knowledge of the research group: As a result, the supplies they comprise have radiation tolerances of as much as 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, that are assembly the market necessities but not specifically those needed for the particular circumstances encountered in research facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product sequence: on the one hand, they were developed for the particular necessities relating to cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we will offer the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers cannot provide as a package,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR fits perfectly properly in the TURBOVAC i eco techniques as different products such as equipment or the software LeyAssist could be utilized as well.
The bottom line is that the new iR models are designed to fulfill the technical necessities 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, users can remove the electronics and place them in areas
the place they don’t appear to be uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary condition in these software areas is absolutely the purity of the pump: this core requirement is fulfilled by the oil-free operation of the bearing system of the new TURBOVAC iR collection. The TURBOVAC iR additionally helps 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 integrated, new TURBO.DRIVE controller automatically acknowledges the pump model and instantly adjusts to the precise working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range utterly covers all current members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In เกจวัดแรงดันสูญญากาศ , Leybold will successively broaden the equipment vary of supporting controllers and cable choices to fulfill customer wants for
additional cable lengths and clever options. The clever Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been released in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will comply with within the third quarter of 2022 together with the extra highly effective controller option to understand even longer cable lengths.
