Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR mannequin series for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum producer Leybold is launching a brand new, full turbomolecular pump series, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i family. “The iR models substitute the former TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the requirements of our high-end research customers – such as the major analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for versatile remote operation from three meters to distances of one kilometre. In Guilt-free had been additionally designed to withstand the challenges which are current in environments with excessive to very high 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 very own cables,” explains product supervisor Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR models had been developed utilizing the existing materials knowledge of the analysis group: As a outcome, the supplies they include 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 other than commonplace market fashions, which are meeting the market requirements but not specifically those needed for the actual situations encountered in research centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they were developed for the special requirements relating to cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can supply the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers can not supply as a package deal,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR fits perfectly properly within the TURBOVAC i eco methods as different products corresponding to equipment or the software program LeyAssist may be utilized as nicely.
The backside line is that the model new iR models are designed to fulfill the technical necessities of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for applications similar to 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 aren’t 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 helps all related 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 mechanically acknowledges the pump model and immediately adjusts to the precise operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary completely covers all existing members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from 90 to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively broaden the accessories vary of supporting controllers and cable choices to meet buyer needs 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 observe in the third quarter of 2022 along with the more powerful controller choice to understand even longer cable lengths.
