Marlton, New Jersey (PRWEB) October 5, 2009
Stuart M. Goldstein, partner and founding shareholder of the law firm of Hollstein Keating Cattell Johnson & Goldstein PC, has been successful in securing approval from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a new revolutionary patent that overcomes the limitations and disadvantages of prior supercharger control systems - efficiently, easily, effectively.
The new invention by Billy Machner of Browns Mills, New Jersey, addresses the problems that plague most current superchargers. A supercharger is installed on a vehicle internal combustion engine to provide air at high pressure into the engine's intake manifolds. Added high-pressure air increases engine horsepower. However, since most superchargers are driven by the engine, the engine has to work harder to operate the supercharger. As a result, engine efficiency is reduced and more fuel is consumed. There are more emissions and more wear on engine components. Simply put, that means added expense for fuel and parts, as well as an increased negative impact on the environment.
Machner's supercharger control system is a compact, solid mount unit that is easily installed on an engine's existing crankshaft by a supercharger clutch assembly. The supercharger control system directs the operation of the vehicle's supercharger, allowing the driver to simply and efficiently switch the supercharger on or off. When the supercharger is not needed, the driver can switch it off - the clutch assembly is disconnected to stop the operation of the supercharger. The driver can easily switch it on when opting to obtain high-speed performance. This on/off process helps, over the long run, to increase fuel efficiency, limit exhaust emissions, and reduce wear on the engine, crankshaft and other engine components, including the supercharger itself, by keeping cool when disconnected.
Retrofitted into aftermarket vehicles with superchargers or offered as standard or optional equipment with new production vehicles, this supercharger control system offers a wealth of practical marketing opportunities.
It is through Mr. Goldstein's expertise in matters involving a variety of industrial and consumer products as well as equipment and systems within the mechanical, electrical, and marine disciplines that make him the patent attorney clients seek out in order to receive patent protection for their creative products and improvements.
Mr. Goldstein oversees Hollstein Keating's southern New Jersey office's Intellectual Property Department, specializing in patent and trademark law. Mr. Goldstein's solid background, experience, and technical knowledge in the mechanical, electrical-mechanical, and marine arts began with his B.S. in Marine Engineering from the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, New York in 1972. For six years, he worked as a patent examiner in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Washington, D.C., attaining primary examiner status. Since 1978, he has been registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as a patent attorney (Registration #22817), handling patent application prosecution and related litigation.
As a specialist in the patent field, Mr. Goldstein advises manufacturers, businesses, and individuals on product design, development, and integrity, guiding them efficiently through the complex patent approval process. Says Mr. Goldstein, "If it is new and useful, if it can be made, if it has potential value, it should be patented. When you are looking to protect your original invention or improvement on existing technology, when you are looking to secure intellectual property ownership rights, when you are looking to safeguard future commercial success, the goal is to protect your patent ownership rights. Over the years, I have seen the consequences of not obtaining patent protection, of opportunities lost, and the loss of investment, time, energy, marketing possibilities and ownership. With patent protection, your creative product or improvement becomes your exclusive property. And the rewards that come with it can be enormous."
Mr. Goldstein's representative patent areas include all types of mechanical and electrical products and improvements, methods and systems: for example, construction tools and equipment, cleaning tools and appliances, electrical lighting and switches, household appliances, plumbing and electrical tools, appliances and related equipment, hardware and gardening tools, conveyor systems, automotive products and accessories, vessel and marine-related products and systems, recreational and leisure-related products, and medical devices and appliances.
Among the newest technical patents that have received patent approval through Mr. Goldstein's professional guidance are the Chair Storage Rack (U.S. Pat. No, 7,578,400), which allows for the simple and efficient storage of beach chairs and beach accessories, and the Adjustable Fishing Rod Holder (U.S. Pat. No. 7,559,171), allowing the fishing rods of anglers and fishermen to be maintained in place in a variety of pre-selected fishing angles. The Bow Mounted Vessel Propulsion System (U.S. Pat. No. 7,096,810), which is a practical, effective, and efficient vessel propulsion system that addresses the limitations of prior propulsion systems, by reducing hull surface drag, enhancing fuel efficiency, and increasing vessel speed and maneuverability. The Conduit Rack Electrical Junction Box (U.S. Pat. No. 7,022,912) provides for a more efficient installation and use in suspended conduit racks. Invented by a licensed electrician for use within the construction industry, this invention accepts runs of protective conduit in conduit rack systems without interfering with the horizontal run of the conduit. This improvement eliminates the need for bending runs of conduit, saving time, material costs and labor. The Bimini Twist Jig (U.S. Pat. No. 7,011,346) offers a simple, easy to use product that always results in the tying of a perfect Bimini twist - considered to be the most important knot in fishing. The Eyeglass Display and Demonstration System (U.S. Pat. No. 6,988,799) is a convenient and practical system that allows the eyeglass wearer to visualize how a given pair of glasses will actually look with any given lens shape and tint before the lenses are fitted in the frames.
