Experimental data for the initial mass flow rate and vent line void fraction during top venting are presented. The fluids used were water, foamy water and fluids with viscosities up to 750 Pa s (4190 times that of water at 150 C). The results show that the vent line void fraction is much higher than the maximum void fraction in the vessel.
