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.
