Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model series for R&D

With pressure gauge ไท วัสดุ , vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a model new, complete turbomolecular pump series, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i household. “The iR fashions replace the former TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the requirements of our high-end analysis prospects – similar to the most important analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product manager, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible remote operation from three meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In all aspects the products had been also designed to resist the challenges that are current in environments with high to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide special cable lengths of as much as 200 meters, and also the choice for the customers to use their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR models were developed using the present materials knowledge of the analysis neighborhood: As a end result, the supplies 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 known as ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them other than normal market fashions, that are assembly the market requirements however not specifically those wanted for the actual conditions encountered in research facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product series: on the one hand, they were developed for the particular necessities concerning cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we are able to provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers cannot supply as a package,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits perfectly well in the TURBOVAC i eco methods as other merchandise similar to accessories or the software LeyAssist may be utilized as nicely.
The bottom line is that the model new iR fashions are designed to meet the technical necessities of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for functions corresponding 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 are not uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary condition in these utility areas is absolutely the purity of the pump: this core requirement is fulfilled by the oil-free operation of the bearing system of the new TURBOVAC iR series. The TURBOVAC iR additionally supports 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 integrated, new TURBO.DRIVE controller routinely acknowledges the pump mannequin and instantly adjusts to the particular working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range 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 equipment range of supporting controllers and cable options to fulfill buyer needs for
extra cable lengths and intelligent options. The clever 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 option to realize even longer cable lengths.
