With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum producer Leybold is launching a model new, full turbomolecular pump collection, technologically derived from the confirmed TURBOVAC i household. “The iR fashions substitute the former TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the requirements of our high-end analysis clients – similar to the major analysis institutes CERN or DESY,” summarizes the responsible product manager, Petr Lastovicka.
Accordingly, the TURBOVAC iR was designed for flexible distant operation from three meters to distances of one kilometre. In all aspects the merchandise were also designed to withstand the challenges that are current in environments with excessive to very excessive ionizing radiation. “For this, we provide particular cable lengths of up to 200 meters, and also the choice for the users to make use of their very own cables,” explains product manager Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions were developed using the prevailing materials data of the analysis community: As a result, the materials 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 called ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them apart from standard market fashions, which are assembly the market necessities but not particularly these wanted for the particular circumstances encountered in analysis facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is totally different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they had been developed for the particular necessities concerning cable length and radiation tolerance. “In ไดอะแฟรม , we are ready to provide the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which other suppliers cannot offer as a package deal,” provides Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR suits perfectly nicely in the TURBOVAC i eco techniques as other merchandise similar to accessories or the software LeyAssist could be utilized as well.
The backside line is that the model new iR fashions are designed to fulfill the technical requirements of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for functions 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 do not appear to be exposed to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary condition in these software areas is completely the purity of the pump: this core requirement is fulfilled by the oil-free operation of the bearing system of the new TURBOVAC iR sequence. The TURBOVAC iR additionally supports all relevant communication options 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 routinely recognizes the pump mannequin and immediately adjusts to the specific operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR range fully covers all current members of the TURBOVAC i family with pumping speeds from 90 to 950 l/s. In parallel, Leybold will successively broaden the equipment vary of supporting controllers and cable options to fulfill buyer wants for

extra cable lengths and clever solutions. The clever Controller TURBO.DRIVE 500eC has been released in April and the TURBOVAC iR sizes 1350 and 1450 will follow within the third quarter of 2022 together with the extra highly effective controller option to comprehend even longer cable lengths.
