With its vacuum innovations for laboratory technology, analytics, and biotechnology, Leybold is participating in this year’s Analytica from 19 to 23 October. The special feature — This year, the trade fair will be held purely virtually – as Analytica Virtual. This premiere offers a platform for all exhibitors and visitors who would have refrained from participating due to the present global situation. To reach interested parties from all over the world, the exhibition will be accessible around the clock on all five days.
Leybold, based in Cologne, is part of the Swedish industry group Atlas Copco. The company’s core competencies are based on the development of components and systems for the generation of vacuum and gas management engineering. The company also has a sales and service office at Pune, India.
Vacuum technology is the core element in many analytical, research, and laboratory facilities. Today, ergonomic, oil-free vacuum solutions that save energy and enable optimized data evaluation are in demand. Suitable vacuum components are an essential factor in the efficiency of running processes.
The product family of dry compressing Roots vacuum pumps Ecodry plus is extended. Leybold’s innovation is celebrating its premiere at Analytica — Leybold has extended its product family of dry compressing multi-stage Roots vacuum pumps Ecodry plus for laboratory, research, and development as well as analytical applications. The Ecodry 40 and 65 plus versions are now joined by the new smaller pump sizes Ecodry 25 and 35 plus. With the completion of these ergonomic, low-maintenance, economical, and completely oil-free backing pumps, Leybold is closing a gap in its portfolio. “The pump is compact in its design, low-vibration, powerful, easy to operate and quiet,” summarizes product manager Alexander Kaiser.
New members of the Turbovac i/iX series: sizes 850 i/iX and 950 i/iX
The vacuum specialist Leybold’s trade fair portfolio includes product presentations, brochures, videos, and lectures – including the Turbovac i/iX series, which has been expanded to include the new sizes 850 i/iX and 950 i/iX. The two new turbomolecular pumps are characterized by long, trouble-free operating times and lower operating costs. They are used in research and development applications where a clean and stable high and ultra-high vacuum is required – such as in analysis, thin-film research, or helium recovery. In vacuum systems with limited installation space and little room for the vacuum pumps, the Turbovac i/iX variants offer maximum flexibility and can be mounted in any orientation.
High-vacuum plug & play pumping stations
The devices of the Turbolab series are plug-and-play high vacuum pumping systems. They offer a wide range of variants — The systems are compact, fully assembled, and can be put into operation immediately. Different configurations cover the special vacuum requirements of the R & D markets and analytical applications. The oil-free hybrid bearing of the Turbovac i/iX turbopumps and the choice of different dry-compressing backing pumps enable hydrocarbon-free operation. These compact pump systems are delivered fully assembled and ready for operation. They include a turbomolecular pump, a backing pump, and an innovative TPU display unit.
The measurement technology associated with vacuum technology is essential for evaluating processes from basic research to industrial manufacturing. Leybold offers suitable measuring instruments, sensors, and components for this purpose.
Measure – Analyze – Optimize
Turbolab systems can be equipped with Thermovac TTR fore-vacuum gauges and Penningvac PTR high vacuum sensors. Connected sensors are recognized, and pressure readings are automatically shown on display.
All critical parameters and operating conditions such as faults, warnings, frequency, temperature are automatically recorded in an internal memory based on a standard time interval and can be adjusted by the user directly on site. An integrated web server allows remote control, monitoring, and configuration of the Turbolab devices from the mobile device or the computer via a browser.
Leybold’s vacuum measurement sensors offer innovation in numerous applications from 2000 to 10 to 12 mbar. These instruments offer higher precision, an extended measuring range, improved reproducibility, and process stability. They complement the portfolio with new types of interfaces and additional ranges for use in lock chambers.
