With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum producer Leybold is launching a model new, full turbomolecular pump collection, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i household. “The iR fashions exchange the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the necessities of our high-end research clients – corresponding to the main 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 one kilometre. In all features the products have been additionally designed to withstand the challenges which are current in environments with high to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer particular cable lengths of as a lot as 200 meters, and likewise the choice for the users to make use of their own cables,” explains product supervisor Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions had been developed using the prevailing materials knowledge of the analysis group: As a outcome, the materials they contain have radiation tolerances of up to 1 million grays (Gy).
In mixture 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 requirements but not specifically these needed for the actual situations encountered in analysis facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is completely different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they had been developed for the particular requirements relating to cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can offer the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers can not offer as a bundle,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits perfectly well within the TURBOVAC i eco methods as different merchandise corresponding to accessories or the software program LeyAssist may be utilized as well.
The backside line is that the new iR fashions are designed to meet the technical requirements of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for functions such as 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

where they do not seem to be uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary condition in these software 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 collection. The TURBOVAC iR also supports all relevant communication choices of the TURBOVAC I, USB, 15-pin digital I/O and all serial and fieldbus options of the TURBO.DRIVE 500e. pressure gauge octa : The built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller routinely acknowledges the pump mannequin and immediately adjusts to the specific operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary completely covers all present members of the TURBOVAC i household 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 needs for

further cable lengths and intelligent solutions. The intelligent Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been launched in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will comply with within the third quarter of 2022 together with the more powerful controller choice to realize even longer cable lengths.
