(54)Bearing for refrigerating compressor


(57) A porous bronze 1b and a resin 1c impregnated in pores of the porous bronze 1b formed on a backing metal 1a constitute a bearing 1. At a surface to be brought into contact with a crank shaft 5, porous bronze 1b and resin 1c are sparsely exposed. Ratio of area of exposure of porous bronze 1b at the contact surface 1d is at least 5% and at most 60%. Thus a bearing for a refrigerating compressor having high seizure resistance at the time of boundary lubrication and having small amount of wear caused by sliding as well as a refrigerating compressor employing the same can be obtained.
