Data obtained in evaporation of propane in a porous coating on horizontally arranged copper cylindrical samples in the case of total and partial submersion in a liquid are analyzed. Using the dependences obtained by solution of the kinetic problems of mass transfer in capillaries, the number of macropores functioning as steam-discharge channels is determined.
