Despite the observed total chaos, a practically deterministic universal separation curve is formed in critical regimes of two-phase flows. We have managed to understand it only by means of an analysis of changes in the entropy of two-phase flows and in other parameters forming a statistical identity. Parameters ensuring the stability of this curve are determined, and the mechanism of their action is shown. A specific equilibrium in the critical regime is substantiated.
