How do pipe supports reduce vibration?

How does the snubber lock immediately during a transient load?

When the velocity of the piston reaches a certain value (about 8in/min),the hydraulic valve will shut off and the entire system is locked. i.e. that isthe piston movement is arrested.

Does the travel scale represent the movement of the spring or the actual pipe movement?

The travel scale onthe constant support shows the total amount of travel of the pipe.

Does an anchor restrict motion in all direction that is X-Y-Z directions?

Anchors will restrict movement in all directions and will also restrictthe rotation of the pipe as well. In the stress analysis, we may see loads inall three directions which will tell us how “strong” the anchordevice has to be.
