Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model sequence for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a 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 necessities of our high-end research prospects – similar to the main analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for versatile distant operation from 3 meters to distances of one kilometre. In all aspects the merchandise were also designed to resist the challenges which 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 also the choice for the customers to make use of their very own cables,” explains product supervisor Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions were developed using the present materials data of the analysis group: As a outcome, the materials they contain have radiation tolerances of as a lot as 1 million grays (Gy).
In เกจ์วัดแรงดันลม with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so called ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them apart from commonplace market fashions, which are assembly the market requirements but not specifically those wanted for the particular situations encountered in research centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product sequence: on the one hand, they had been developed for the particular requirements relating to cable length and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can offer 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 completely properly within the TURBOVAC i eco methods as different merchandise similar to equipment or the software program LeyAssist can be utilized as nicely.
The bottom line is that the new iR models are designed to fulfill the technical necessities of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for purposes such as 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
the place they are not exposed 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 model new TURBOVAC iR sequence. The TURBOVAC iR also supports 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 advantage: The integrated, new TURBO.DRIVE controller mechanically recognizes the pump mannequin and instantly adjusts to the specific operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary completely covers all current members of the TURBOVAC i household with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively expand the accessories range of supporting controllers and cable options to satisfy customer wants for
extra cable lengths and clever options. 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 together with the more powerful controller choice to comprehend even longer cable lengths.
