I cant find a clause in API 537 that either prohibits or allows the use of a flare gun as the primary method for igniting the flare pilot except for section 4.8.2, third bullet point where its stated that igniter shall work without relying on the flare igniting the pilot (i think its impossible to light the pilot itself with a gun reliably anyway). Any thoughts on this?
Best regards, Morten
