Leybold GmbH launched its small plug-and-play high vacuum pumping system for research and development (R&D), laboratories and industrial applications. The entry-level model, a compact tabletop unit, fills the gap for entry-level vacuum needs that require a clean, dry, stable high and ultra-high vacuum, the company says. The TURBOLAB series now is available in five variants featuring TURBOVAC 90 i and 250 i backed by DIVAC 1.4 and covers the complete application spectrum for R&D and analytical applications. The ergonomic, cost-effective system is made up of proven Leybold components including the oil- and maintenance-free TURBOVAC i turbomolecular pump, the DIVAC 1.4 dry diaphragm backing pump and a simple controller. The compact pumping station frame stands on rubber feet, which provides a low-vacuum system geared to the ambient conditions of laboratories and research facilities. Additionally, the operation and control of the TURBOLAB Core is intuitive, user friendly and provides excellent pumping performance at a good price-performance ratio, it adds.
