A venturi scrubber is one of the filtered venting systems and removes fuel productions (FPs) by spraying with the scrubbing water by self-priming. The FPs removal performance of the system was confirmed by various tests. However, the flow pattern of the water-steam two-phase flow and pressure distributions in the venturi scrubber which is one of the most important factors for the removal performance has not been experimentally clarified. In this study, water-steam flow behavior and pressure distributions in a single venturi scrubber were measured. The experiment resulted in the scrubbing water decreased with increasing the steam throat velocity with the increase of the throat pressure. On the lower steam velocity conditions, spray was generated from the wavy of the water column ejected from the water supply pores. The water film was generated with the increase of even higher velocity. The pressures for each position in the venturi nozzle were almost the same and approximately 100 kPa in the self-priming mode. On the scrubbing water stop condition, the pressure was higher at the throat than the water head pressure and negative pressure at the downstream of the throat. The result indicate that the scrubbing water can be supplied at this position on the decrease and the stop conditions of the supplied scrubbing water with the high steam velocity.
