Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR mannequin collection for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum producer Leybold is launching a brand new, full turbomolecular pump collection, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i household. “ pressure gauge วัด แรง ดัน น้ำ exchange the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the necessities of our high-end analysis customers – similar to the most important research 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 1 kilometre. In all elements the products have been additionally designed to resist the challenges that are present in environments with excessive to very high ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide special cable lengths of as much as 200 meters, and likewise the option for the customers to make use of their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions had been developed using the existing materials knowledge of the analysis group: As a result, the supplies they comprise have radiation tolerances of up to 1 million grays (Gy).
In combination with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so called ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them other than standard market fashions, which are meeting the market requirements but not particularly those needed for the actual conditions encountered in analysis centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they have been developed for the particular requirements regarding cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we are in a position to provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers can not offer as a bundle,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits perfectly nicely in the TURBOVAC i eco systems as other products similar to accessories or the software program LeyAssist could be utilized as well.
The bottom line is that the new iR models are designed to fulfill the technical requirements of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for applications such as 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
the place they don’t seem to be uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary condition 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 model new TURBOVAC iR sequence. The TURBOVAC iR also supports all relevant communication choices of the TURBOVAC I, USB, 15-pin digital I/O and all serial and fieldbus options of the TURBO.DRIVE 500e. Another benefit: The integrated, new TURBO.DRIVE controller mechanically recognizes the pump mannequin and instantly adjusts to the particular operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range 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 accessories vary of supporting controllers and cable options to satisfy customer needs for
further cable lengths and clever solutions. 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 together with the more highly effective controller choice to comprehend even longer cable lengths.
