What are the advantages of using hydraulic snubbers over mechanical snubbers?

Hydraulic snubbers can be used over longer spans so there is less torque during a process upset. They are not susceptible to dust as mechanical snubbers are. They also have a bit more flexibility in the amount of loads that they can handle.
