During postulated severe accidents transfer of volatile iodine dissolved in containment water sumps to atmosphere can be fostered under pool evaporative conditions. Scarcity of representative data has resulted in semi-empirical models that relies on fitting parameters and still need of further validation. This paper presents a mechanistic model based on: the Two-Film model, the heat-mass transfer analogy and the surface renewal surface theory. Comparison to data from the SISYPHE program has resulted in an accurate response, the error band being 9-25% for the aqueous steady state concentration. Likewise, the model performance has been compared to others' in the literature and, in addition to yield similar results, some advantages have been highlighted: the mechanistic nature, the estimates conservatism, and the thorough documentation of model grounds and assumptions
