Where slug flow may exist in a piping system, is a snubber the proper element to use to dampen the impulse forces in the piping?

You would only use the snubber if it is an occasional occurrence, not if it is a continuous occurrence. If you want to lock it in place, use a sway strut. If you want to dampen the impulse forces, then use a sway brace.
