Leybold’s LEYSPEC Series Designed For Demanding Residual Gas Analyses

Vacuum specialist Leybold has launched its LEYSPEC Series of monitoring devices for all basic and extended residual gas analyses methods found in demanding high and ultra-high vacuum applications.

Leybold’s LEYSPEC monitoring device offers efficient residual gas analyses.

Available in six variants, the device combines uncomplicated handling with maximum detection sensitivity. Equipped with an integrated display, the LEYSPEC product range is easy and ergonomic to operate. At the touch of a button, users can display the partial pressures of relevant gases at any time. If a user is interested in an additional gas involved, another channel can be individually assigned to it. The device’s compact size and flexible mounting capability allows it to be used in a variety of installation and measuring tasks encountered in research and industrial applications.

The LEYSPEC software, which is part of the product range, supports usability of the different models. It further enables a wide range of applications, from simple operations to complex analyses. The software always displays the total pressure. It also offers users a choice of analysis options. Additional test procedures and functionalities are pre-installed, such as the helium leak test, or the setting of warnings and error limits for certain gases. Simple gas analyses can be performed without connecting the LEYSPEC to a computer.

The new series is also engineered for all applications in mass spectrometry. For residual gas analyses, the product range offers solutions for 100, 200 or 300 amu (atomic mass units), depending on process requirements. The LEYSPEC view version is particularly suitable for residual gas analyses in high-vacuum pumping stations found in research and development applications, as well as for environmental tracking and gas impurity analyses. Additionally, the LEYSPEC ultra variant is designed for sophisticated residual gas analyses with higher sensitivity, as well as reliable detection of very low partial pressures and higher bake-out temperatures.
