I am starting an electrical service company that specializes in something called electric heat trace (EHT)
My company name is Pro EHT Services Ltd
I am looking to have a logo designed that will be unique, clean, and stand out. This logo will also appear on business cards, letterhead, decals on tucks/ job trailers..
Some things to know about the product we service (EHT) Electric Heat Trace
heat trace is tie wired on to oilfield process piping to maintain pipe temperatures. It is skinny and made of stainless steel. There are two small conductors inside the heat trace that create the heat. The inside of the EHT surrounding the conductors is packed with a white powder.
The heat trace basically looks like skinny stainless steel tubing. It can't be crossed over itself when installed. It can't wrap around the pipe.. It always goes on the pipe straight or like an S. So it can be removed without taking the pipe apart. It conforms to the pipe perfectly when installed. Can look really neat when installed correctly.
It can get extremely hot. Up to around 700 deg C or 1300 deg F
I would like for the logo to show that it is HOT stuff. I don't want to create the look of an open flame though as these oil companies are all about safety. Maybe a controlled flame if you use one..
I have some ideas of how I'd like the logo to look. I want to give you as much info about the EHT as possible so that you can develop a logo that will look like it represents what our company does.. Fixing this electric heat trace..
Pro EHT Sercices
I would like the "o" of Pro to look like a cut off of a piece of heat trace. So the outside of the o would be stainless steel color, the inside will be white hard powder, two dark silver wires will be coming out of the o that head off to start the letter "E" in EHT..
I would like the letters EHT to somehow flow together as one continuous piece of stainless steel heat trace. There could also be an illusion that heat is coming off the word EHT. If possible have the heat look like it's moving horizontally. Maybe into a pipe.
I thought it might be neat if the shape of the words Pro EHT Services could be curved to create the illusion of a pipe.. Or their could be a physical process pipe that the words Pro EHT Services look like they conform too. The words could be the heat trace on the pipe.. the pipe could start off big and look like it's getting smaller as it's heading off in the distance. Then head off to a plant in the background.. Most of the plants I work for have 5 or 6 smoke stacks coming from one of their buildings that are quite distinctive.. Maybe the pipe could sort of head off in the distance ending in a plant with those smoke stacks..?
I will attach a bunch of pictures of heat trace installed on pipes and vessels.. Also some pics of the SAGD Steam Gen stacks I was referring to. To get ideas for the stacks off in distance you could google SAGD steam generation images. Could also google SAGD wellpads, and mineral insulated heat trace.
I was tempted to just see what you would come up with but this is such a niche thing it would really be cool to have the elements of the SAGD facility and MI heat trace represented in the logo. I am so excited about this and appreciate your creativity!
