Ionization Flame Detectors

Ionization flame detectors employ a sensor that uses an ionization process to trigger an alarm if smoke enters detector’s functional chamber, which contains a small amount of a radioactive material: americium-241. When smoke disrupts a current in the ionization chamber, it causes the smoke detector to trigger.

The NFPA recommends the use of ionization flame detectors together with photoelectric smoke detectors for maximum warning against fires.
