Research Centers are furnaces that specialize in producing Research Points (RP). They have a faster rate of RP production than that of most furnaces. Excluding the Basic Research Center, they all have a minimum threshold of their ore value or the amount of upgrades the ore has. However, they have a very poor processing multiplier compared to other furnaces of their tier, so it isn't advised to use these as means of making more money faster.
