Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model 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 exchange the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the necessities of our high-end analysis clients – corresponding to the major research 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 one kilometre. In all elements the products were also designed to resist the challenges which are current in environments with high to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer special cable lengths of up to 200 meters, and in addition the choice for the customers to make use of their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR models have been developed utilizing the prevailing materials knowledge of the analysis neighborhood: As a result, the materials they comprise have radiation tolerances of as a lot 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 apart from commonplace market fashions, that are assembly the market necessities however not specifically these needed for the particular situations encountered in research centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they had been developed for the particular necessities relating to cable length and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we will supply the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers can not supply as a package,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR matches เครื่องมือความดัน in the TURBOVAC i eco systems as other products similar to equipment or the software program LeyAssist may be utilized as well.
The backside 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
where they are not 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 new TURBOVAC iR sequence. The TURBOVAC iR additionally supports 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 benefit: The built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller routinely acknowledges the pump mannequin and instantly adjusts to the precise operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary utterly covers all present members of the TURBOVAC i household with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively broaden the accessories vary of supporting controllers and cable choices to fulfill customer wants for
further cable lengths and intelligent options. The clever Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been released in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will observe in the third quarter of 2022 together with the more powerful controller possibility to comprehend even longer cable lengths.
