With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a new, complete turbomolecular pump series, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i family. “The iR fashions exchange the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the necessities of our high-end research clients – such as the main research institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the accountable product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible distant operation from three meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In all features the merchandise had been additionally designed to withstand the challenges that are present in environments with high to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide special cable lengths of up to 200 meters, and likewise the choice for the users to use their own cables,” explains product supervisor Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions were developed utilizing the prevailing material information of the analysis neighborhood: As a result, the materials they comprise 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 aside from normal market fashions, which are assembly the market requirements but not specifically those wanted for the actual situations encountered in research centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is completely different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they have been developed for the special necessities relating to cable length and radiation tolerance. “In เพรสเชอร์เกจวัดแรงดันน้ำ , we can provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers cannot offer as a bundle,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits perfectly properly within the TURBOVAC i eco techniques as different products corresponding to accessories or the software LeyAssist could be utilized as well.
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 similar to 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
where they do not seem to be exposed to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary situation 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 brand new TURBOVAC iR sequence. The TURBOVAC iR additionally helps all related communication options of the TURBOVAC I, USB, 15-pin digital I/O and all serial and fieldbus options of the TURBO.DRIVE 500e. Another benefit: The integrated, new TURBO.DRIVE controller automatically recognizes the pump mannequin and instantly adjusts to the specific operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range utterly covers all present members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from 90 to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively increase the equipment range of supporting controllers and cable choices to meet buyer wants for
further cable lengths and intelligent solutions. The clever 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 along with the extra highly effective controller choice to understand even longer cable lengths.
