In this work the transition of 4He at the lambda line in presence of a Cattaneo-Maxwell heat flux is studied. A hydrodynamical model is formulated, which chooses as fundamental fields the velocity, the temperature, the heat flux and a phase field function f, for which a time dependent Ginzburg-Landau equation is proposed. Using this model we are able to describe the phase transition and to obtain the pressure-temperature phase diagram which represents the transition, the thermodynamic restrictions and a maximum theorem for the phase field.
