Rotor bearing for jet engine. Rotor bearing, part of an aircraft's jet engine, being washed after an acid bath. This process is to clean the component. Jet engines use turbines to draw in air and compress it before it is mixed with fuel and burnt in a combustion chamber. The engine's exhaust gases are then used to spin another turbine which provides the power to drive the compressor turbine.
