With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a new, full turbomolecular pump series, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i household. “The iR models replace the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the requirements of our high-end research clients – such as the major analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the accountable product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible remote operation from three meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In all elements the merchandise were additionally designed to resist the challenges that 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 in addition the option for the customers to make use of their very own cables,” explains product supervisor Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR models have been developed utilizing the present materials data of the analysis community: As a result, the materials they contain 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 aside from commonplace market fashions, which are assembly the market requirements but not particularly these wanted for the particular situations encountered in analysis facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is completely different with the TURBOVAC iR product sequence: on the one hand, they have been developed for the particular requirements concerning cable length and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we are able to provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers cannot supply as a package,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR matches perfectly well within the TURBOVAC i eco methods as other merchandise such as accessories or the software program LeyAssist may be utilized as well.
The backside line is that the new iR fashions are designed to fulfill the technical requirements 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 take away the electronics and place them in areas
the place they aren’t uncovered 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 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. เครื่องมือความดัน : The built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller mechanically acknowledges the pump model and immediately adjusts to the particular working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary completely 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 accessories range of supporting controllers and cable options to satisfy customer needs for
additional cable lengths and intelligent options. The intelligent Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been launched in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will follow in the third quarter of 2022 along with the more powerful controller choice to comprehend even longer cable lengths.
