This paper describes the rotor dynamic stability analysis and the PTC-10 Class 1 test of a three body centrifugal compressor train for high pressure natural gas injection service. This train had a full load full pressure string test on hydrocarbon gasses to a final discharge pressure of 500 BAR (7250 PSIA). Each compressor is of the back to back configuration, and is equipped with tilting pad seats, damper bearings, and a honeycomb labyrinth at the division wall with shunt holes. The driver is a gas turbine.
