Oursinite is associated with a whole series of other secondary uranium minerals such as curite, becquerelite and kasolite.
The curite combination sensor is comprised of an Interlink force-sensing resistor to determine pressure, and an iron-constantan thermocouple that measures temperature.
Each curite signal conditioner is designed to accommodate eight combination pressure and temperature sensors, or eight separate pressure and temperature sensors respectively, if single point readings are not required.
