Is there a difference for drag force for hydraulic and mechanical snubber?

There is little difference in the initial dragforce associated with mechanical and hydraulic snubbers. Basically, both stylesare designed to impart a maximum of 2% of their design restraint load duringnormal pipe deflection.
