With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a model new, complete turbomolecular pump collection, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i family. “ เครื่องมือที่ใช้วัดความดันคือ replace the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the requirements of our high-end research clients – similar to the most important research institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the accountable product manager, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for versatile distant operation from 3 meters to distances of one kilometre. In all elements the merchandise had been additionally designed to withstand the challenges which are present in environments with high to very high ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide special cable lengths of as much as 200 meters, and also the option for the customers to use their own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions were developed utilizing the existing materials knowledge of the research neighborhood: As a end result, the supplies they comprise have radiation tolerances of up to 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 meeting the market necessities but not particularly those needed for the particular circumstances encountered in research centers,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they have been developed for the particular requirements relating to cable length and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers cannot offer as a bundle,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits perfectly properly within the TURBOVAC i eco systems as different merchandise corresponding to accessories or the software program LeyAssist can be utilized as well.
The bottom 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 functions such as 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 are not uncovered to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary situation 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 sequence. The TURBOVAC iR also 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 built-in, new TURBO.DRIVE controller mechanically acknowledges the pump mannequin and instantly adjusts to the particular operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range utterly 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 accessories range of supporting controllers and cable choices to meet buyer needs for
further 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 in the third quarter of 2022 along with the extra highly effective controller option to comprehend even longer cable lengths.
