Type "C" Disposable RDD Devices
Pneu-Dart Type "C" disposable RDD Devices are 13mm caliber and are designed to provide precise drug delivery in a convenient, inexpensive projectile. These RDD Devices are appropriate for use on small or large animals. Color coded in orange, Type "C" RDD Devices are best used with our cartridge projectors. These RDD Devices are used with the following Pneu-Dart Model Projectors: Model 389 – Cartridge Fired, Model 196 – Cartridge Fired, and Model 193 – Cartridge Fired (Model retired)
Note: Type "C", and "P" RDD Devices appear to be identical, but the "C" device has a slightly larger tail diameter for use in our cartridge-fired projectors.
How They Work
Type "C", "P" and "U" RDD Devices contain a small explosive charge which detonates on impact and quickly injects the liquid. RDD Devices 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 device mechanics, the RDD Device will “flash” when activated, a real asset in low-light conditions.
First and Only disposable Slo-Inject® RDD device on the market!
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.
Cannula (Needle) Lengths
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 RDD device in place until the injection is made, and after several minutes will liquefy, allowing the RDD device to fall freely from the animal.
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 they have in the past.

PolyCARBONATE Bodies (.5 cc to 2 cc)
With the advent of our patented Slo-Inject® technology Pneu-Dart has fortified its plastic RDD Device 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 Device possesses enhanced mechanical and superior chemical resistance properties.
Aluminum Bodies (3 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.
