A Multi Venturi Scrubber System (MVSS) is one of the filtered venting devices, and used for existing reactors in Europe. One of the main components of the MVSS is a self-priming Venturi Scrubber (VS). It is considered that a dispersed or dispersed annular flow is formed in the VS by a self-priming phenomena. In the self-priming phenomena, the liquid was suctioned from a surrounding region to the inside of the VS. And a part of the radioactive materials in the gas are eliminated to the liquid through the gas-liquid interface of the dispersed or annular dispersed flow. Therefore, to consider the MVSS operation characteristics, it is important to evaluate the liquid flow rate of the self-priming of the VS including the occurrence condition of the self-priming. In this paper, to understand the self-priming phenomena of the VS for the filtered venting, theoretical preliminary analysis for evaluating liquid flow rate of the self-priming of the VS and experiment to observe self-priming phenomena and measure the liquid flow rare of the self-priming were performed. By comparing these results, we discussed about the mechanism of the self-priming phenomena. As a result, the self-priming phenomena in the VS was observed. In addition, at a higher gas mass flux, the suspension of the self-priming phenomena was confirmed both experimentally and theoretically.
