A Pease-Anthony Venturi scrubber is a relatively simple and very efficient device used for gas cleaning. This paper presents photographic images of the atomization of a liquid jet in the throat of a Pease-Anthony Venturi scrubber, obtained through the development and use of an electronic flash of short duration. This new evidence was used to improve the parameters of the model of Gonçalves et al. (2000) . The experimental conditions used were: throat gas velocities between 59 and 74m/s, jet velocities between 3.18 and 19.10m/s and liquid injected into the throat through different orifices.
