    We find that the DMS Go+ and DA 503 probe will cover most of the rubber conveyor belts types. It is a most cost effective solution.
    The typical requirement of asset owners is to measure the cover thickness of rubber down to either the fabric or steel cord.
    Using a twin crystal probe allows you to take thickness measurements down to less than 1.0 mm.
    You require a machine with a good quality pulser so that the pulse of sound energy can penetrate the rubber. This is due to the sound absorbing properties of rubber. Standard ultrasonic thickness gauges just do not measure up. Using a single crystal probe will allow you to measure say 4 mm rubber and above but due to the design of a single crystal you cannot measure thin thickness.
    That is why the above combination is the most suitable.
    Hope this helps
    Cheers
