Babbitt bearings are commonly found in compressors, turbines, pumps, generators, electric motors and other industrial rotating equipment. The bearings are designed to support the weight of the shaft and to maintain its axial position. Components are machined to specific tolerances that allows the shaft to float on a thin layer of oil in between the bearing. This prevents metal-to-metal damage to the high-speed rotating shaft and the bearing.
Babbit bearing repair is more that just replacing babbitt. We inspect, recondition the bearing, insulate when needed, clean all water jackets, re-machine the oil groves and repair the bearing housing to your specifications.
At Cleveland Rebabbitting Service we apply a metal alloy coating that goes on the base metal to protect your bearing from wear. Once completed your bearing is now protected on the surface of your casting giving it an extended life span.
