reactors, plural;
  1. An apparatus or structure in which fissile material can be made to undergo a controlled, self-sustaining nuclear reaction with the consequent release of energy

  2. A container or apparatus in which substances are made to react chemically, esp. one in an industrial plant

  3. A person who shows an immune response to a specific antigen or an adverse reaction to a drug or other substance

  4. A coil or other component that provides reactance in a circuit


  1. an electrical device used to introduce reactance into a circuit
  2. nuclear reactor: (physics) any of several kinds of apparatus that maintain and control a nuclear reaction for the production of energy or artificial elements
  3. Reactor is a physics engine from the Irish software company Havok for use in Autodesk 3D Studio Max.
  4. Reactor is a raster video arcade game released in 1982 by Gottlieb. The object of the game is to cool down the reactor core without being hurled by magnetism and repulsion by enemy swarms of nuclear particles. ...
  5. A person who behaves in response to a suggestion, stimulation or some other influence; A device which uses atomic energy to produce heat; A chemical substance which responds to the presence or contact with another substance
  6. (Reactors) in which the uranium rods are immersed in a bath of heavy water are often referred to as swimming-pool reactors.
  7. Commercial reactors for generating electric power and research and test reactors used for research, testing, and training
  8. A reactor is an electrical device that applies only reactive load to a system.
  9. Any of a variety of containers for carrying out refining, chemical, or other similar processes. Often reactors are little more than large tanks, but they can be very sophisticated, with methods for mixing reactants and controlling temperature.
  10. Device or process vessel in which chemical reactions (e.g., catalysis in fuel cells) take place.
  11. An isolated container, usually located near the sump, that performs a specific task such as increasing calcium or oxygen in the water.
  12. A device that harnesses the energy in a nuclear fission chain reaction. Commercial reactors are thermal reactors, using a moderator such as water to slow down the neutrons.
  13. Since the reactor is UNPRESSURIZED, the reactor vessel can be made from relatively inexpensive 1/2 inch thick welded nuclear-rated Hastelloy-N instead of the massive 10 inch thick steel forgings needed for conventional nuclear reactors. ...
  14. A facility in which fissile material is used in self-sustaining chain reactions (nuclear fission) to produce heat and/or radiation for both practical application and research and development. ...
  15. A facility that contains a controlled nuclear fission chain reaction. Also see nuclear reactor.
  16. An electromagnetic device providing inductive reactance for current limiting and compensation for excessive capacitive currents.
  17. A business-level strategy that characterizes inconsistent and unstable decision patterns.
  18. container or tank in which controlled chemical & biological reactions used for the treatment of wastewater are carried out.
  19. One highly-aggressive reactive coverstock. Readily accepts both scuffing and polishing to achieve desired breakpoint.
  20. Arrangement to create and control a chain reaction.
  21. small coil of tightly-wound tubing used in flow injection analysis used to thoroughly mix reactants.
  22. A device, generally a single winding on an air core or an iron core, which produces a specific amount of inductive reactance for which it is designed.
  23. A ballast that uses an electromagnetic component to limit current flow.
  24. A device used to add a substance to the aquarium water in a controlled manner. Ozone, kalkwasser, and carbon dioxide are the most common reactors. They are typically a chamber water is pumped through with an injector for the additive.
  25. A complex machine that heats water to boiling, producing steam to turn a turbine that generates electricity. The heat for boiling the water is produced by the fission, or splitting, of uranium atoms.
