In this paper we construct Lax pairs for Stäckel systems with separation curves from so-called Benenti class. For each system of considered family we present an infinite family of Lax representations, parameterized by smooth functions of spectral parameter.

Key words: Lax representation; Stäckel system; Benenti system; Hamiltonian mechanics.
