Heritage Group Inc. / Heritage Geophysics Inc.
The latest in resistivity meters, electromagnetic, magnetometers, induced polarization, seismographs, and even magnetic resonance sounding systems. we take great pride in bringing you what we feel is the best selection of geophysical equipment, and most advanced product line on the web.
On these pages you will find the latest in resistivity meters, electromagnetics, magnetometers, induced polarization, seismographs, and even magnetic resonance sounding systems. Have a question? If it is close to normal working hours in the Rocky Mountain time zone you can probably reach us right now, by e-mail or phone. If not we will get back to you quickly, normally by the next morning.
If you are looking for geophysical services please go to our Contractor's page for a listing of service providers throughout the United States. If you are not familiar with doing geophysical surveys we strongly recommend you consider hiring a professional. Our rental program is structured for those familiar with the use of this type of equipment.
Our broadest line of equipment is resistivity meters. From the traditional four electrodes at a time approach, all the way through resistivity imaging systems with hundreds of electrodes being sampled remotely, and everything in between, we have a system that can best meet your budget and requirements. We also have the software for resistivity inversion, both 2D and 3D, even for marine and ERT.
Many of our clients are looking for methods to locate and quantify ground water resources. For a discussion of geophysical methods used for groundwater exploration and the hydrogeological parameters that may be measured please go to our paper on Groundwater & Geophysics. This paper discusses the common parameters of porosity, permeability, transmissivity and conductivity.
For magnetometers we offer the traditional proton precession type, and the advanced cesium vapor magnetometers with gradiometer options, even with multiple sensors. Magnetic susceptibility meters are offered for use on rock outcrops, and also for field samples.
Our line of seismographs is also quite wide, encompassing more traditional models that feature built in displays, thermal printers, and data storage on hard drives, to lightweight, easy on the budget systems often described as 'black boxes', utilizing notebook computers for system control, and data display and storage. Whether you need to do a simple refraction survey, or a detailed high resolution shallow reflection profile, we have a system that will do the wor
If your inquiry is from outside of the U.S., we welcome your interest and hope to earn your eventual business. We realize that the different customs of various countries require flexibility in meeting your needs. We attempt to do business directly with the end client so as to minimize the costs of additional handling, and to better understand your applications, so that we quote equipment most suitable to your work.
In most cases you will find our quotes are provided on the basis of receiving payment at the time of order, or in the case of a very large order, with a 50% deposit. Most equipment is delivered in 4-6 weeks, so we feel that the cost of money is minimized by this approach, and we discount our prices based on this payment method. Should you require Letter of Credit Terms we will accept orders on this basis, but you will find our quoted prices will be about 10% higher.
Shipping is most often by prepaid courier service, either Federal Express or DHL. We will generally quote this way so that you know the total charges, less your local Customs fees, for the equipment. These carriers we have found to be reliable and insured, so that tracking of your order can be done by both you and us. We also use airfreight in those countries where this service is the best choice.
If your country has special import duties for various classifications of goods, or for different Origins, please let us know. We supply equipment from suppliers located around the world, so it is likely your order may have parts from more than one country. We can supply you with this information, as well as copies of Commercial Invoices, Certificates of Origin, etc., in advance, so that we can be sure the forms are correct when your equipment is received.
Training is offered in our offices, or at your location. Generally the quality of training is better at your site, as we may be able to have more of your staff present, and we will be working in your local conditions. We also provide exceptional e-mail and telephone support, and in many cases, particularly if you already have geophysical experience, this is sufficient.
We do not normally rent to international clients except in the case of a large multi-national company with U.S. offices. International rentals offer many logistical problems, such as delayed freight, and Customs fees, that make rentals less attractive than purchase in almost any situation. If you still have a rental interest please feel free to contact us. If we can provide equipment, most likely we will require a deposit in the full value of the equipment before shipment.
Thank you for your interest in our products. I hope we can earn your business.
