How do I use a snubber?

The main criteria to remember when utilizing snubbers is that they are intended to be passive elements during normal operation and will become activated only when that unwanted impulse event is present. When that impulse event dissipates, the snubber will become deactivated and thus produce negligible restraint to pipe deflections under standard operating conditions.
