An approximate approach was formulated to estimate the coefficient of convective mass transfer from small preshaped rectangular fragments of oil sands when subjected to hot streams of products of combustion of lean mixtures to hydrogen in air at low Reynolds number and at temperatures up to 1000 K. A simple expression which was derived to correlate the mass transfer coefficient in terms of the connective stream temperature was shown to fit the experimental data well.
