This Standard is intended to fulfill the need for control of dimensional specifications for flexible chain couplings with covers that utilize a roller chain or silent chain as the coupling medium. Metric equivalents of all dimensions and capacities are given.
This Standard was first submitted by the Chain Coupling Committee of the Roller Chain Technical Committee of the American Chain Association and utilizes information supplied by the members as well as the AGMA Standard Nos. 510.02, 511.02, 512.03, 513.01, and 515.01 pertaining to flexible couplings. Approval of this Standard was granted by the ASME Standards Committee B29 and the ASME.
The American National Standards Institute, Inc., approved this Standard on April 10, 1985.
