Generalization of the kinetic equation for a dense fluid with a multistep interaction potential to the case of a dense mixture is presented. Derivation of hydrodynamic equations is performed starting with the kinetic equation for the one-particle distribution function and the transport equation for the potential energy density. Expressions for momentum and heat fluxes are obtained. The transport equation for the kinetic energy density is shown to contain a new term of the "source" type, which describes fast exchange processes between kinetic and potential energies of the system.

Key words: kinetic theory, square-well potential, energy exchange, fluid mixture, multistep interaction
