What are hot settings, piston setting, cold settings, and pre-set of a snubber?

Hot settings are the settings at the operating conditions. Cold settings are the settings at the installed position or start-up. The piston setting is the location of the position within the snubber at the cold position. Pre-set can refer to the setting specified by the engineer due to the anticipated movement.
