The nonequilibrium steady states establishment when the heat flow is turned on in superfluid mixtures with a sufficiently high concentration 9.8% of 3He is considered. We investigate influence of possible relaxation mechanisms, in particular the Kapitza jump on the process of establishing a constant temperature gradient. From a comparison of theoretical calculations and experimental data thermal diffusivity coefficient, thermal conductivity coefficient, and Kapitsa coefficient are found. It is shown that the Kapitza jump accounting is necessary for a quantitative description of the experimental data.
