Pneu Dart Type ‘U’ RDD Darts have the most versatile and universal tail design for Pneu-Dart and non Pneu-Dart Projectors. Type U tails for 6cc – 10cc darts are the standard tail design for any projector. Type ‘U’ darts contain a small explosive charge which detonates on impact and quickly injects the drug. 5cc x 3/4".
Type U tails have been created to support 1/2cc – 5cc darts in conjunction with projectors not manufactured by Pneu-Dart.
Many of the more seasoned customers may be familiar with these as ‘P’ Type Dart with Flight Stabilizer Tails. Rest assured they are one in the same; renamed in part as one of our latest steps in streamlining processes and meeting the needs of our customers.
- Reduced rate of injection
- Virtually no tissue damage to the animal
- Minimizes potential for "bounce-outs"
- Now constructed with structurally superior and chemically resistant resin
- Helps to ensure ideal delivery
How They Work
Type ‘U’ darts contain a small explosive charge which detonates on impact and quickly injects the drug. Darts equal to or less than 1 cc do not require retention (wire barb or gelatin collar) due to the rate of injection. As a consequence of the dart mechanics, the dart will “flash” when activated, a real asset in low-light conditions.
Proper remote drug delivery must be delivered to the O-Zone™ injection site. Pneu-Dart recommends consistently delivering an appropriate sized practice device to a six-inch target before attempting to deliver any medication remotely. The species neutral O-Zone™ is on the side of the neck forward of the shoulder.
Aluminum Dart Bodies (2 cc – 10 cc)
RDD devices (3.0cc – 10.0cc) are laser engraved with the volume of the injectable liquids capacity. With this value added feature “at-a-glance” identification will help provide the best treatment possible. Made out of aluminum tubing, our RDD Devices are designed to ensure optimum performance under any condition.
RDD Devices are available with 14-gauge cannula in lengths of 3/8″, 1/2″, 3/4″, 1″, 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″ and 2″.
RDD Devices 1.5 cc through 10 cc are equipped with a gelatin collar. 0.5cc – 10cc can be ordered with a wire barb. 3/8″ cannula are available in plain only. 1/2″ cannula are available in gelatin collars or wire barbs. We do not recommend wire barbs or gelatin collars on 1/2 cc or 1 cc devices; however, they are available at an additional cost. Gelatin collars comprise of an inert material retaining the dart in place until the injection is made, and after several minutes will liquefy, allowing the RDD Device to fall freely from the animal.
The chart listed below is a general guide for cannula lengths when administering intramuscular injections. Thirteen gauge cannula in specific lengths are also available. When ordering, please specify type of dart and cannula length. Not sure what will work best for you?
