IMSC Group is the exclusive service provider and manufacturer of Outotec® Physical Separation product lines and OEM parts.

After a group of industry experts saw the line of tried and true Outotec® (Formerly Carpco®, Inprosys® and Humphreys®) equipment and parts were no longer being supported well in the industry, they founded International Mineral Separation Components (IMSC) Group with a clear mission in mind: Dedication to establishing the highest industry standard through quality products, delivered value, and superior services - Supplied honestly, without wasting time or money.  

In early 2018, IMSC Group was granted the exclusive license for the service and manufacture of Outotec® Physical Separation product lines (excluding SLon® magnetic separators).

IMSC Group is committed to manufacturing Outotec® logo equipment and spare parts in accord with same specifications and quality standards you have come to know and trust. The IMSC team, located in Jacksonville, Florida U.S.A., has more than 100 years combined experience in the manufacture and supply of these specific separators and parts. Our primary goal is to provide exceptional customer service and technical support while being proactive in providing solutions that promote your success.


We are incredibly humbled and honored to have the opportunity to build partnerships with the breadth of customers currently employing Outotec® Physical Separation technologies in their concentrator plants, and those ready to become physical separation solution clients.
— Michael Zalipski, CEO/Owner IMSC Group
