Lateral and torsional vibration data were obtained on a centrifugal compressor train which had shaft instabilities and gear failures. The field data verifies that the stability of centrifugal compressors can be adversely affected by coincidence of torsional natural frequencies with lateral instability frequencies. The data also indicates that excitation energy from gearboxes can reduce stability margins if energy is transmitted either laterally or torsionally to the compressors. The lateral and… CONTINUE READING
