We analyse the structure of equilibria of a coagulation–fragmentation–death model ofsilicosis. We present exact multiplicity results in the particular case of piecewise-constantcoefficients, results on existence and non-existence of equilibria in the general case, as wellas precise asymptotics for the infinite series that arise in the case of power law coefficients
