What does the hot or cold setting mean on a constant spring support?

The "cold" setting on a constant spring support refers to the location of the pipe at the installed position. The "hot" setting refers to the design location of the pipe at the operating position. In general, prior to installation, all spring supports are set at the "cold" setting.
