I would like to know if it is possible to install, in terms of reliability and safety, a Buckling Pin Valve (BPV) instead of a FOV (Fast Opening Valve) for isolation of a flare header when installing a Flare Gas Recovery System.

As a secondary layer of protection, assume that a rupture disc is installed in parallel to the isolation valve.
