This paper discusses the application of squeeze-film dampers in series with the tilting pad bearings of a large centrifugal compressor. The compressor was first factory tested with non-damper bearings and there was some subsynchronous vibration. Damper bearings were installed and the subsynchronous vibration was gone. The compressor shipped with damper bearings. Analytical and test results will be presented for both rotor dynamic systems. Design considerations in the use of squeeze-film dampers with tilting pad journal bearings will be reviewed.
