The heat exchange process of moist sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is studied. The method for determining the thermal conductivity coefficient of a moist disperse material is developed. The thermophysical properties of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose are determined. The influence of moisture content and density of the material on its thermal conductivity coefficient is studied. An empirical equation is derived by processing the experimental data to calculate the thermal conductivity coefficient of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose at different densities of the moist material.
