"A more advanced setup that produces 6 points every 45 ore. Only accepts ore worth more than $20 and processes ore for 1/3rd value."
The Proficient Research Center is an Uncommon-tier furnace. It's the second of the four research centers bought in the shop, and used to be great for new players to get research points.
It does not give much money, however (as it processes ores at less than their actual value).
- The minimum value this furnace can give you is $6.67.
