Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR mannequin series for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a new, complete turbomolecular pump collection, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i family. “The iR models substitute the former TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the necessities 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 three meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In all aspects the products were also designed to withstand the challenges that are current in environments with high to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide particular cable lengths of as much as 200 meters, and in addition the choice for the customers to use their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions had been developed utilizing the prevailing materials knowledge of the analysis group: As a end result, the materials they include have radiation tolerances of up to 1 million grays (Gy).
In combination with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so referred to as ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them other than standard market fashions, which are meeting the market necessities however not particularly these needed for the particular conditions encountered in analysis facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is completely different with the TURBOVAC iR product sequence: on the one hand, they had been developed for the special necessities regarding cable length and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can supply the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers cannot offer as a package deal,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR fits pressure gauge octa in the TURBOVAC i eco systems as different products similar to accessories or the software program LeyAssist may be utilized as nicely.
ไดอะแฟรม is that the model new iR models 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, users can take away 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 utility areas is completely 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 supports all relevant communication options of the TURBOVAC I, USB, 15-pin digital I/O and all serial and fieldbus choices of the TURBO.DRIVE 500e. Another benefit: The built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller automatically acknowledges the pump model and immediately adjusts to the particular operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary fully covers all present members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from 90 to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively broaden the accessories range of supporting controllers and cable options to fulfill buyer needs for

further cable lengths and clever solutions. The intelligent 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 option to understand even longer cable lengths.
