With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum producer Leybold is launching a new, full turbomolecular pump series, technologically derived from the confirmed TURBOVAC i household. “The iR models substitute the former TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for example, the requirements of our high-end analysis customers – similar to the major research institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product supervisor, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for versatile remote operation from 3 meters to distances of one kilometre. In all elements the products had been also designed to withstand the challenges which are current in environments with high to very high ionizing radiation. “For this, we offer special cable lengths of as much as 200 meters, and also the choice for the customers to make use of their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to ไดอะแฟรม ซีล , the iR models were developed utilizing the existing materials data of the research neighborhood: As a outcome, the supplies they contain have radiation tolerances of as a lot as 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 other than commonplace market models, that are assembly the market necessities but not particularly these wanted for the particular conditions encountered in research facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is completely different with the TURBOVAC iR product sequence: on the one hand, they have been developed for the special requirements concerning cable length and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can offer the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers cannot supply as a package,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR fits perfectly properly within the TURBOVAC i eco systems as different products corresponding to accessories or the software program LeyAssist could be utilized as well.
The backside 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 applications 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

where they are not exposed to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
เกจวัดแรงดัน 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 new TURBOVAC iR collection. The TURBOVAC iR additionally helps all related 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 mechanically acknowledges the pump model and immediately adjusts to the particular working modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range completely 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 accessories range of supporting controllers and cable choices to fulfill buyer needs for

further cable lengths and clever options. The clever 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 extra highly effective controller choice to comprehend even longer cable lengths.
