Tin-Lead Babbitt

Tin based babbitts are considered superior to lead based alloys in as much as they pour more readily and provide an excellent bond between the shell and lining. They are customarily used for high speed, high temperature load bearings.

Lead based babbitts are more economical and used for low speed, uniform speed and moderate pressure as in line shafting, electric motors and general machinery. These babbitts are also used in applications subjected to shock loads.
