Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR mannequin sequence for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a brand new, complete turbomolecular pump series, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i household. “The iR models replace the former TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the requirements of our high-end research prospects – corresponding to the most important analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible remote operation from 3 meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In all elements the merchandise had been also designed to resist the challenges that are present in environments with excessive to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide special cable lengths of as a lot as 200 meters, and also the choice for the users to use their very own cables,” explains product supervisor Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions had been developed utilizing the prevailing material information of the research neighborhood: As a end result, the supplies they include have radiation tolerances of as much as 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 commonplace market fashions, that are assembly the market necessities but not specifically these needed for the actual conditions encountered in research centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they were developed for the particular requirements relating to cable length and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we will provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers cannot provide as a bundle,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits perfectly well within the TURBOVAC i eco methods as other products such as accessories or the software program LeyAssist could be utilized as well.
The backside line is that the new iR models are designed to satisfy the technical necessities of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for applications similar 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 aren’t uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
เกจแรงดันสูง 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 sequence. The TURBOVAC iR also helps all related communication options 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 mannequin and instantly adjusts to the particular operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary completely covers all existing members of the TURBOVAC i household with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively expand the equipment range of supporting controllers and cable options to satisfy buyer 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 follow within the third quarter of 2022 along with the extra powerful controller choice to realize even longer cable lengths.
