    Since its founding, the American Chain Association (ACA) has set the standard of excellence in developing the chain industry and enhancing the benefit to customers. The first edition of Chains for Power Transmission and Material Handling served as the keystone reference to the field for more than twenty years. Fully updated with the latest developments, the Standard Handbook of Chains: Chains for Power Transmission and Material Handling, Second Edition continues to build upon the more than 100 years of research and practical experience developed by the ACA.

    This hands-on reference provides up-to-date guidance on the selection, design, utilization, and maintenance of various types of chains. It authoritatively covers the use of chains in various application environments, terminology, safety procedures, and the history of chains. The book features consistent selection guidelines to ensure a proper choice of chain every time. Updates include new information on chain design considerations, power ratings for roller and silent chains, and selecting drives with a life other than 15,000 hours. This edition includes an entirely new chapter on flat-top chain conveyors.

    Including many helpful illustrations and a comprehensive troubleshooting table, the Standard Handbook of Chains: Chains for Power Transmission and Material Handling, Second Edition is the definitive handbook for anyone involved in the design, selection, use, and maintenance of all types of chains.
