Why use the Leybold TURBOVAC i?

The TURBOVAC i/iX family has grown again and now has two further members. The new TURBOVAC 1350 i/iX and TURBOVAC 1450 i/iX offer additional pump sizes with significantly higher pumping speeds than previously available, enabling customers to take advantage in more applications. That‘s why you can always rely on TURBOVAC i/iX! 

TURBOVAC 1350 i/iX and TURBOVAC 1450 i/iX, what's new?

  • From 90 to 1390 l/s pumping speeds, the TURBOVAC i/iX range is now suited for even more applications.
  • The TURBOVAC i/iX range covers pumping speeds over 1400 liter class
  • From 6 to 8 family members. No matter which application, we offer the right pump size to meet your operation requirements
  •  From serviceability to active bearing management
  •  A pump generation for stress-free operation and service where the pump actively manages the  bearing, and bearing replacement on-site is possible
  • From IP40 to IP54. While all TURBOVAC i/iX pumps offer IP40 as standard, IP54 is an option on our TURBOVAC i/iX 850-1450 for protection in industrial and coating environments
