TURBOVAC 1350 i and 1450 i Models

Sept. 1, 2021
Leybold USA's TURBOVAC 1350 i and 1450 i Models offer fast cycle times, high throughputs, and low cost-of-ownership.

The TURBOVAC 1350 i and 1450 i models expand the TURBOVAC i/iX pump family for industrial, coating, and research applications that require robust pumps with higher pumping speeds. The new 1350 and 1450 sizes of turbomolecular pumps have been developed to maximize the speeds.


Both pumps offer high throughput while tolerating high fore-vacuum pressures of up to 4 mbar. With DN 200 and DN 250 flange sizes to choose from, these models are optimized to maximize conductance. There is a lifetime-lubricated ceramic ball bearing on the fore-vaccum side that users can replace themselves with the help of a service kit.


One of the benefits of the design is their insensitivity against mechanical impacts and harsh venting, which can occur in many industrial type applications.


While the TURBOVAC i/iX pumps have so far had protection class IP40 as standard, the new sizes (850 i to 1450 i) offer protection class IP54 as an option. This means that the models are better suited for use in particularly harsh environments and are more resistant against water and dust ingression through improved sealing of the connections and components.


Maintenance of the TURBOVAC 850 i to 1450 i has been simplified with smart systems which check the condition of the mechanical bearing and warn when a service is imminent. TURBOVAC pumps can be run in any orientation; to achieve this with the larger 1350 i and 1450 i, Leybold released two variants. “U” versions of the larger pumps are installed upside down up to a horizontal orientation. The standard versions can be installed with the inlet facing upwards to a horizontal orientation.


All TURBOVAC models can also be easily controlled, configured, and monitored with the next generation software Leyassist.


The TURBOVAC iX simplifies integration into systems, with the ability to control the fore-vacuum pump and up to two sensors/gauges. To support specific applications in industrial and coating markets, the TURBOVAC range also offers the full spectrum of field bus support: the universal connection called "Anybus" enables communication via Profibus, Ethernet IP, ProfiNET, and EtherCAT through selectable modules, all of which are available in the IP54 version on the TURBOVAC 850-1450 i range.
