How do I set (load) a spring support?

In order to set (load) a spring support, you must ensure that the pipe system is at its cold (installed) state. (All hydro-testing has been completed.) At this point, with variable springs, the lower travel stops should be removed. Adjust the load at the load column of the spring so that a load slightly above the cold load is reached. The remaining travel stops can now be removed. Note: Excessive force should not be required to remove the travel stops at this time.
