The design of turbines and compressors operating at the high rotational speeds applies the 3-lobe journal bearings. In many cases the classic 3-lobe journal bearings supporting the rotors, are showing the problem of rotor stability. This problem can be avoided by the application of 3-lobe Offset bearings. This type of bearing fulfils the conditions of reliable bearing design and good stability in the case of high speed rotating machines.
