A model for non-linear behaviour of a magnetization in strong de Haas van Alphen effect is proposed. It describes correctly measured values of the magnetic induction splitting due to Condon domains in silver, beryllium and aluminium. It is shown that the characteristics of magnetization curve in Condon domain phase depend on temperature, magnetic field and Dingle temperature.
