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 sequence, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i household. “The iR models substitute the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the requirements of our high-end research clients – corresponding to the main research institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the accountable product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, Final was designed for flexible remote operation from three meters to distances of one kilometre. In all elements the products were additionally designed to withstand the challenges that are present in environments with high to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide special cable lengths of up to 200 meters, and likewise the choice for the users 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 community: As a result, the materials they contain 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 apart from standard market fashions, which are meeting the market necessities but not specifically those needed for the actual situations encountered in analysis centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product sequence: on the one hand, they were developed for the particular requirements regarding cable length and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we will supply the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers can’t provide as a package deal,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits perfectly well in the TURBOVAC i eco methods as other merchandise corresponding to equipment or the software program LeyAssist may be utilized as nicely.
The backside line is that the brand new iR models are designed to fulfill the technical requirements of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for applications corresponding to synchrotrons (particle accelerators), cyclotrons (circular accelerators), linear accelerators and free-electron lasers. “In these areas, users can remove the electronics and place them in areas
where they are not uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary situation 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 brand new TURBOVAC iR collection. The TURBOVAC iR additionally helps 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 advantage: The integrated, new TURBO.DRIVE controller mechanically recognizes the pump model and instantly adjusts to the precise operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary fully covers all existing members of the TURBOVAC i household with pumping speeds from 90 to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively broaden the equipment range of supporting controllers and cable choices to meet buyer wants for
further 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 comply with in the third quarter of 2022 along with the more highly effective controller option to realize even longer cable lengths.
