Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model sequence for R&D

With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum producer Leybold is launching a new, full turbomolecular pump series, technologically derived from the confirmed TURBOVAC i household. “The iR models exchange the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the requirements of our high-end analysis customers – similar to the most important research institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the accountable product manager, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for versatile remote operation from 3 meters to distances of one kilometre. In ไดอะแฟรม ซีล had been additionally designed to withstand the challenges which are current in environments with high to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide special cable lengths of as a lot as 200 meters, and also the option for the customers to use their very own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions were developed utilizing the existing material knowledge of the analysis group: As a outcome, the supplies 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 referred to as ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them apart from commonplace market fashions, that are meeting the market requirements but not specifically these wanted for the particular conditions encountered in analysis centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product series: on the one hand, they were developed for the special requirements relating to cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we will supply the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers cannot provide as a package deal,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits perfectly properly within the TURBOVAC i eco techniques as different products corresponding to accessories or the software LeyAssist can be utilized as nicely.
The bottom line is that the brand new iR fashions are designed to meet the technical necessities of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for functions similar to 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

the place they aren’t uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary condition in these software areas is completely the 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 also 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 benefit: The built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller automatically recognizes the pump mannequin and instantly adjusts to the precise working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary utterly covers all current members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively broaden the equipment vary of supporting controllers and cable choices to fulfill customer needs for

further 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 follow within the third quarter of 2022 together with the more powerful controller possibility to realize even longer cable lengths.
