Sever accident due to molten core of Nuclear Power Plant causes the production of steam which carries the radioactive iodine. It is important to retain the radioactive iodine from contaminated gas and steam before it is released into the environment. The purpose of this research is to investigate the removal efficiency of iodine in a submerged venturi scrubber for saturated steam at 100°C. Venturi Scrubber is submerged in a venturi tank filled with liquid which is alkaline by adding sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and sodium thiosulphate (Na2S2O3) in scrubbing water. Saturated Steam of 100 °C is injected into an experimental loop. Iodine removal efficiency is investigated for saturated steam at various compressed gas flow rate 330, 420, and 510 kg/s. Inlet and outlet concentration are measured at the sampling points of an experimental loop to calculate the iodine removal efficiency. The maximum removal efficiency of 99.4% is achieved at gas mass flow rate of 510 kg/s.
