Patents by Inventor Jesse Morin

Jesse Morin has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 9909683
    Abstract: A gearbox assembly for an actuator is provided. The gearbox assembly includes a rack, a spur pinion, a bevel pinion, and a bevel gear. Vertical translation of the rack causes rotation of the spur pinion and bevel pinion around a horizontal axis. The rotation of the bevel pinion causes rotation of the bevel gear around a vertical axis. The gearbox assembly may be coupled to a movable member of a valve so that actuation of the gearbox assembly moves the movable member. Systems including the gearbox assembly and methods of operation are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 9890865
    Abstract: A system including a flow control system, including a flow control mechanism configured to control a flow of fluid through a fluid passage, a rack and pinion system coupled to the flow control mechanism and configured to transfer motion from an actuator to the flow control mechanism, a biasing element coupled to the rack and pinion system, wherein the biasing element is configured to store potential energy as the flow control mechanism transitions from a closed position to an open position or an open position to a closed position, and a failsafe device configured to release the potential energy stored in the biasing element to open or close the flow control mechanism.

  • Patent number: 9222555
    Abstract: A linear actuator is provided. In one embodiment, the actuator includes a motor, a gearbox, and a linear actuation device. The motor serves as a primary input to provide a rotational input to the gearbox, which generates a corresponding rotational output. The linear actuation device converts the rotational output of the gearbox into a linear motion for driving a load in a linear direction. The actuator includes an override system as a secondary input. The override system may be operated to drive the gearbox in the event that the motor becomes non-operational. Anti-back-driving devices may be provided to prevent back-driving of the motor and of the override system. In the context of a resource extraction system, the motor may be an electric motor powered by subsea electronic control system. Additional systems, devices, and methods are also disclosed.
