5. An roller screw actuator for a subsea choke or module according to Claim 4, wherein: said support assembly adjacent said end of said actuator housing supporting said plurality of anti-rotation keys includes an extension extending through a bore in said end of said actuator housing;
said extension including a splined end having a splined adapter thereon; and, said splined adapter having an internal configuration on its outer end for coupling with and transmitting torque to a stem.
6. An roller screw actuator for a subsea choke or module according to Claim 5, wherein:
said axially reciprocable piston includes a annular flange formed thereon, said annular flange positioned in a counterbore is said actuator housing;
said annular flange and said counterbore having annular seals positioned thereon to form an annular chamber in which said axially reciprocable piston reciprocates; and,
said actuator housing including pressure ports at either end of said annular chamber to supply pressurized fluid for reciprocation of said piston and a plurality of anti-rotation keys positioned on one end of said actuator.
7. An roller screw actuator in combination with a subsea choke, said combination comprising:
a subsea choke having an inlet, an outlet and a axially moveable flow restricting member therebetween to regulate flow;
an actuator housing secured to said subsea choke;
a driven member, said driven member centrally disposed in said actuator housing and supported therein by support assemblies;
a pressure responsive driving member coupled to said driven member whereby axial movement of said pressure responsive driving member imparts rotational movement to said driven member;
said rotational movement of said driven member cooperating with a stem on said subsea choke flow restricting member to control axial movement and positioning of said flow restricting member; and,
an adapter positioned on one end of said actuator housing for manipulation of said driven member.
8. An roller screw actuator in combination with a subsea choke, said combination according to Claim 7, wherein:
said pressure responsive driving member is an axially reciprocable piston;
