Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR mannequin series for R&D

With pressure gauge หน้าปัด 4 นิ้ว , vacuum producer Leybold is launching a brand new, complete turbomolecular pump collection, technologically derived from the confirmed TURBOVAC i household. “The iR fashions replace the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the requirements of our high-end analysis clients – similar to the main 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 have been additionally designed to withstand the challenges that are present in environments with high to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer special cable lengths of as a lot as 200 meters, and in addition the option for the customers to make use of their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR models were developed using the present material information of the analysis neighborhood: As a outcome, the supplies they comprise 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 aside from normal market fashions, that are meeting the market necessities but not specifically these needed for the particular conditions encountered in research centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is completely different with the TURBOVAC iR product sequence: on the one hand, they were developed for the special requirements relating to cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can offer the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers can’t provide as a package,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits completely properly in the TURBOVAC i eco systems as other products corresponding to accessories or the software program LeyAssist can be utilized as nicely.
The bottom line is that the new iR fashions are designed to satisfy 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 are not exposed 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 brand new TURBOVAC iR series. The TURBOVAC iR also supports 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. Another benefit: The integrated, new TURBO.DRIVE controller routinely acknowledges the pump model and instantly adjusts to the precise operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range fully covers all current members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively expand the accessories range of supporting controllers and cable choices to meet customer wants for

extra cable lengths and intelligent solutions. 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 choice to understand even longer cable lengths.
