With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum producer Leybold is launching a brand new, full turbomolecular pump sequence, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i household. “The iR fashions substitute the former TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the requirements of our high-end research clients – such as the most important 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 one kilometre. In all aspects the products have been also 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 up to 200 meters, and also the choice for the customers to make use of their very own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR models were developed utilizing the prevailing materials information of the research group: As a result, the supplies 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 apart from normal market fashions, that are meeting the market necessities but not specifically these wanted for the particular situations encountered in research facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product series: on the one hand, they were developed for the particular necessities relating to cable length and radiation tolerance. “In เกจแรงดัน , we can supply the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers can not provide as a bundle,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR matches perfectly nicely in the TURBOVAC i eco methods as other merchandise such as accessories or the software LeyAssist can be utilized as well.
The bottom line is that the new iR fashions are designed to satisfy 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 take away the electronics and place them in areas
the place they aren’t exposed to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary situation in these application 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 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 advantage: The integrated, new TURBO.DRIVE controller automatically recognizes the pump mannequin and instantly adjusts to the specific operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary completely covers all existing members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively expand the equipment vary of supporting controllers and cable options to satisfy customer needs for
further cable lengths and intelligent solutions. The intelligent Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been released in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will follow in the third quarter of 2022 along with the extra highly effective controller possibility to understand even longer cable lengths.
