The first edition of Chains for Power Transmission and Material Handling set the standard for the selection of chain drives and conveyors. After twenty years of growth in the chain industry, this landmark reference enters its second edition with extensive updates and revisions that make it easy to read and understand, enabling readers to absorb and apply the information quickly. It includes new information on chain design considerations, increased power ratings for roller chains and silent chains, and selecting drives with alternate lives. The book includes a new chapter on flat top chain conveyors and features individual chapters on chain lubrication, installation, and inspection and maintenance.
