Experimental measurements were performed of the time dependence of solid phase concentration in suspension at the outlet from the apparatus with the mechanically stirred charge. Suspension was being withdrawn continuously with fresh water supplied into the charge. Validity of the theoretical approach proposed earlier has been verified by the performed experiments. It has been demonstrated that the studied effect can be under certain conditions described with sufficient accuracy by a simple material balance of the solid phase in the system.
