The Reactant Dynamo is an energy generating machine added by the Thermal Expansion mod.

The Reactant Dynamo is designed to use the alchemy reaction of a solid catalyst with a liquid fuel to enhance the energy production. The liquids can be inserted manually using a bucket or automated using a transport system such as a Itemduct and Fluiduct. The dynamo generates Redstone Flux at a rate of 80 RF per tick and has an internal buffer of 40,000 RF; the energy stored will slowly drain and be lost if not used. Installing the Augment: Excitation Field Limiter allows the Dynamo to automatically stop generating energy when the buffer is full and the energy produced is not used by the connected network, avoiding idle fuel consumption and energy loss.

The Dynamo generates energy when both a fuel and a catalyst is present. The catalyst is consumed after a certain amount of energy is produced regardless of the fuel used. The table shows the energy produced by fuel accepted by the Dynamo and the catalyst duration.

Reactant Dynamo can be used to create the following items:


  1. The amount of energy generated is per 1,000 mB or unit of fuel.
  2. The amount of energy produced by the fuel with a unit of reactant. For example: using 1,000 mB of Creosote to produce 200,000 RF will consume over 12 Sugar but less than 2 Gunpowder.
