ABSTRACT
It was shown in the paper that kinetic equations relating recoveries of two components in separation products and time, when combined together to eliminate the time parameter, provide mathematical equations which relate recoveries of the two considered components in concentrate. The obtained one-adjustable-parameter type equations are very useful for approximation of the separation results plotted as the so-called Fuerstenau upgrading curves. Most empirical mathematical formulas presently used for the Fuerstenau plots were derived using various kinetic equations while some are still awaiting for their kinetic derivation.
