English translation:(water) jet cutter
Explanation:
I'm not at all sure about this, as I don't think a water jet cutter is really "reactive", but since "реактивный" very often can be translated as "jet", maybe it is a slightly off-course "калька".

A water jet cutter is a tool capable of slicing into metal or other materials using a jet of water at high velocity and pressure, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance. The process is essentially the same as water erosion found in nature but accelerated and concentrated by orders of magnitude. It is often used during fabrication or manufacture of parts for machinery and other devices. It has found applications in a diverse number of industries from mining to aerospace where it is used for operations such as cutting, shaping, carving, and reaming.
