IF ALL ELSE FAILS, READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS !
For the Continental US they feature a US-standard plug (NEMA Pub.No.WDI.1961 ASA
C 73.1 . 1961 page 8 15A 125V).
For using the item in a country with deviating outlet / plug systems, we recommend to
use approved adapters or to have an electrician replace the standard plug with one suiting your needs.
As shipped, the item features a protective ground wire. When replacing the original plug,
make sure to reconnect this protective ground wire in the new plug !
SAFETY INFORMATION
Please comply with all safety and accident-prevention regulations as in force for
laboratory work !
Use extra care when working with flammable substances; refer to safety data
sheets.
When connecting your item with your local power supply, please make sure your
item is designed for your local voltage; go by the data plate on the item.
Turn your power switch OFF whenever the item is not used, or before disconnecting the plug.
Repair work is limited to technicians approved by Heidolph Instruments.
Use extra care when working in the vicinity of flammable and explosive substances. Motors are of non-sparking type, the item itself however is not explosionproof.

DESCRIPTION
The Heidolph RZR 50 Stirrer is a general-purpose, high-torque stirrer. The RZR 50 is
driven by a powerful, maintenance-free, totally-enclosed capacitor motor equipped with
ball bearings and built-in thermal protection overload mechanism (with reset switch).
The speed range is variable from 45-2000 rpm, over two ranges, and the range
change-over can be performed during standstill or while the stirrer is in operation. The
gear mechanism is of the friction-type providing exceptionally long life and high torque
transfer (see torque chart).
By varying the stirrer speed and by choosing the proper size paddle, the stirrer can
provide exactly the right mixing action needed for the fluid to be mixed. A number of
paddles are available - see accessories. There are a few simple rules of thumb for selecting the impeller of your needs:
• A small impeller at a high speed gives intense turbulent mixing of low viscosity
fluids.
• A larger impeller at lower speeds gives less turbulent, less intense mixing. This
usually will incorporate less air and less foam, but will not break up agglomerate or
dissolve solids as quickly.
• Larger impellers and lower speeds are needed as viscosity increases. If a pasty
material will not move around in the container (but moves readly near the impeller) increase the impeller size and reduce speed.
• As container size increases, impeller size should increase.
This stirrer was designed to be user-friendly, compact and light weight, ideal for
cramped conditions in the laboratory. The RZR 50 runs vibration-free and very quiet
and can be used for continuous operation.

ASSEMBLY
The Heidolph RZR 50 Stirrer comes complete with support rod, 4 mm Allen key,
chuck, chuck key, and 2.5 mm Allen key.
1. Loosen Allen set screw (a) with the 4mm Allen key (d). There are two knurled
Depressions on one end of the support rod (b) and this end of the support rod
should be inserted into the opening of the mounting bracket (c) at the back of the
unit with the knurled depressions facing up. When tightening the set screw
(a) make sure the set screw is tightened into one of the two knurled depressions.
2. Insert the other end of the support rod into the opening of the clamp (h) (clamp
Order No. 570-22000-00, stand Order No. 570-12000-00) and tighten using
handle (i).
3. Either the chuck (f) or the flexible stirrer coupling (Order No.509-04000-00) depending on the application, is used to hold the paddle.
4. Simply insert the chuck or flexible coupling over the hollow drive shaft (g) and
tighten the set screw (e) with the 2.5 mm Allen key.
5. Insert the paddle shaft (see accessories) into the open chuck, adjust the paddle
to the desired height (the hollow shaft allows the shaft to come through the top of
the stirrer if necessary and provides great flexibility for fast and efficient paddle
adjustment), tighten the chuck's outer ring by hand, and then secure with the
chuck key.
When using the flexible stirrer coupling .insert the paddle shaft in the coupling's
connector and tighten by turning the sleeve to the right.

Operation
1. After preparing the operation to be performed, the unit is ready to be turned on. Plug
the cable into the wall socket
CAUTION: Ensure the unit's voltage and the line voltage (i.e. wall socket) are the same!
The serial plate on the back of the unit will give the unit's voltage and cycles (in Hz).
The ON-OFF rocker switch on the front of the unit is used to turn the instrument on and
off. The pilot lamp should light up when the instrument is operational.
2. The control knob on the front of the unit adjusts the stirring speed from 45 to 2000 rpm.
Speed is adjustable, whether the stirrer is running or not. The RZR 50 has 2 speed
ranges: Range 1 from 45-300; and Range 2 from 300-2000. On the control knob, two
scales are found. The left side, indicated by the number “1”, is Range 1. The right side,
indicated by the number “2", is Range 2. The knob indicates the speed on the appropriate scale, depending upon which speed range is employed.
In order to switch from one range to the other, the switch on the right side of the stirrer (see diagram) must be used. The speed range, either "1" or "2" (indicated by the
number on the switch) is chosen by lining up the desired number with the red dot.
The setting "0" keeps the motor running but disengages the shaft.
7
Built-in Thermal Protection and Overload Mechanism
The RZR 50 has, built into its winding, a mechanism to prevent motor burn-out or
overload. The stirrer must cool off first before resuming operation if this mechanism is triggered. Turn the stirrer OFF with the rocker switch and allow the stirrer
to cool. To restart, press the reset button (see diagram) on the top of the unit and
turn the unit.
CLEANING & SERVICING
Cleaning: wipe housing clean with a damp cloth (add some sort of mild liquid soap).
Note
To avoid damage to the surface finish, avoid using chlorine bleach, chlorine-based detergents, abrasive substances, ammonia, rags or cleaning
agents containing metal particles.
Service
CAUTION: Always disconnect the unit from the line voltage (i.e. wall socket) before
servicing.
Should the stirrer make a knocking sound during operation or slip under
load, the friction hemisphere must be replaced.

Changing the Friction Hemisphere
1.
2.
3.
4.
Remove the motor housing (a) (see diagram) by removing the three screws. The
gear mechanism is then lying open in the other half of the housing.
Remove the two-step pulleys (b. and c.)
The friction hemisphere can now be lifted out with the help of a screwdriver. Replace with a new one. The pressure of the new hemisphere is adjusted at point (d)
with a 4 mm Allen key.
To assemble, reverse the order of the steps above.
