Riverside Inc is a Babbit bearing repair facility

Babbitt bearings, also called sleeve style bearings, are normally made up of 2 halves, that are machined at specific tolerances to allow the shaft to ride on a film of oil in-between the shaft and the Babbitt bearing.

Babbitt is a soft metal which can be scraped to repair minor defects. If the defects are substantial enough that they cannot be scraped, pouring new Babbitt may be necessary.

Babbitt bearings are common in certain types of electric motors, as well as pumps, compressor, and many other applications.
