With the TURBOVAC iR variants, vacuum manufacturer Leybold is launching a brand new, full turbomolecular pump series, technologically derived from the proven TURBOVAC i household. “The iR models exchange the previous TURBOVAC ClassicLine pumps and meet, for instance, the requirements of our high-end research prospects – 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 features the products had been additionally designed to withstand the challenges that are present in environments with excessive to very excessive 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 very own cables,” explains product supervisor Petr Lastovicka. According to Lastovicka, the iR fashions have been developed using the existing material data of the research group: As a end 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 known as ultra-high vacuum pumps, “These attributes set them apart from normal market fashions, which are assembly the market requirements however not particularly those needed for the particular situations encountered in research facilities,” says Petr Lastovicka. This is different with the TURBOVAC iR product collection: on the one hand, they were developed for the special necessities concerning cable size and radiation tolerance. “In addition, we can offer the TURBOVAC iR pumps mixed with our ion pumps and NEG pumps, which different suppliers cannot offer as a package deal,” adds Lastovicka. TURBOVAC iR fits completely properly in the TURBOVAC i eco systems as different products similar to accessories or the software LeyAssist may be utilized as properly.
The backside line is that the brand new iR fashions are designed to fulfill the technical necessities of the high-energy physics market. This makes them predestined for applications 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
where they don’t seem to be exposed to radiation,” explains Petr Lastovicka.
Another elementary situation in these application areas is absolutely the 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 additionally supports all related 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 recognizes the pump model and instantly adjusts to the particular operating modes.
The TURBOVAC iR vary utterly 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 accessories range of supporting controllers and cable choices to fulfill buyer wants for
further cable lengths and clever options. เครื่องมือวัดความดันคือ .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 extra highly effective controller option to comprehend even longer cable lengths.
Applications at a look:
– Synchrotron Beamline / End station
– Synchrotron Ring
– LINAC (Linear Accelerator) electron in analysis

General requirement to have remote
operation of the TMP
Key Success Factors:
– Strong tolerance for radiation environments
– Flexible remote operation over very long distances
– Excellent efficiency for mild gases
– No oil/particle emission from the pump
– Partly tolerance for magnetic fields
– Easy maintenance (onsite)
