Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR mannequin series 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 fashions replace the former TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the requirements of our high-end research clients – similar to the main research institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product manager, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible distant operation from 3 meters to distances of one kilometre. In all features the products were additionally designed to withstand the challenges which are present in environments with high to very high ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer special cable lengths of up to 200 meters, and likewise 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 prevailing materials data of the research community: As a outcome, the materials they include have radiation tolerances of as much as 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 commonplace market fashions, that are meeting the market necessities but not particularly these needed for the actual conditions encountered in analysis facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is completely different with the TURBOVAC iR product series: on the one hand, they have been developed for the special requirements concerning cable length and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we will provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers can not supply as a package,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits perfectly properly within the TURBOVAC i eco systems as different products such as accessories or the software LeyAssist could be utilized as properly.
The bottom line is that the new iR models are designed to satisfy 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 take away the electronics and place them in areas

where they do not appear to be uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
เกจวัดแรงดัน in these utility 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 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 options of the TURBO.DRIVE 500e. Another advantage: The integrated, new TURBO.DRIVE controller automatically recognizes the pump model and instantly adjusts to the specific operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary fully covers all present members of the TURBOVAC i family 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 meet buyer needs for

additional cable lengths and clever options. The intelligent Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been released in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will observe within the third quarter of 2022 along with the more highly effective controller choice to realize even longer cable lengths.
