Leybold designs new TURBOVAC iR model collection for R&D

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 exchange the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the requirements of our high-end research prospects – such as the major analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, Thought-provoking was designed for versatile remote operation from three meters to distances of 1 kilometre. In all elements the products have been also designed to resist the challenges that are current in environments with high to very high ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer special cable lengths of up to 200 meters, and also the choice for the users to make use of their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions were developed utilizing the existing material information of the analysis group: As a result, the supplies they include have radiation tolerances of as much as 1 million grays (Gy).
In mixture with the ion getter and non-evaporable getter pumps, so called ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them apart from normal market models, which are meeting the market requirements however not particularly those wanted for the actual circumstances encountered in research facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they had been developed for the special requirements relating to cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we will supply the TURBOVAC iR pumps combined with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers can not provide as a bundle,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR fits completely well in the TURBOVAC i eco techniques as different products similar to equipment or the software LeyAssist could be utilized as well.
The backside line is that the new iR fashions are designed to satisfy 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, users can remove the electronics and place them in areas
the place they are not exposed 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 series. The TURBOVAC iR additionally supports all relevant 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 built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller mechanically acknowledges the pump mannequin and instantly adjusts to the precise operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary fully covers all present members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from ninety to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively broaden the equipment range of supporting controllers and cable options to meet buyer wants for
additional 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 together with the more highly effective controller option to comprehend even longer cable lengths.
