Pneu-Dart RDD Features
Each of our RDDs are custom built per-order and specifically designed to meet the demands of the customer. We have a variety of options to choose from when ordering your RDDs.
POLY CARBONATE / ALUMINUM BODIES
Poly RDD Bodies (.5 cc to 2 cc): With the advent of Slo-Inject® technology Pneu-Dart has fortified its plastic RDD body by transitioning over to an opaque polycarbonate resin. Equipped with a color-coded polypropylene Type ‘C’ or Type ‘P’ tail, the Slo-Inject® PolyCarb RDD is ballistically equal and structurally superior. (Poly RDDs are only available in .5 cc – 2 cc sizes.) Aluminum RDDs (3 cc – 10 cc): Made out of aluminum tubing, our RDDs are designed to ensure optimum performance under any condition.
GREEN and RED Gelatin Collars: Designed to assist in easy identification we have elected to use two colors for our Gelatin Collars. The traditional Green color is now used on all end-port discharge cannulas. The Red Gelatin Collars are now assigned to our Tri-Port (end and side port) discharge cannulas. Although different in color our gelatin collars function equally as reliable as they have in the past.
CANNULA (NEEDLE) LENGTHS
RDDs are available with 14-gauge cannula in lengths of 3/8″, 1/2″, 3/4″, 1″, 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″ and 2″. RDDs 1.5 cc through 10 cc are equipped with a gelatin collar but can be ordered with a wire barb. 3/8″ cannula are available in plain only. 1/2″ cannula are available in gelatin collars only. We do not recommend wire barbs or gelatin collars on 1/2 cc or 1 cc RDDs; however, they are available at an additional cost. Gelatin collars comprise of an inert material retaining the RDD in place until the injection is made, and after several minutes will liquefy, allowing the device to fall freely from the animal. Thirteen gauge cannula in specific lengths are also available. Unsure of what option is best for you? Call our helpful Customer Care Providers at 866-299-DART (3278) for assistance.
