This system, with a heated mixing reactor, uses a plurality of interchangeable containers adapted to be placed in a jacket and heated with circulated hot water. In the manufacture of organic vehicle systems for formulation into screening paste, suitable organic resins are dissolved in organic solvents. This is generally accomplished by stirring the components together in a heated vessel until completely dissolved. In accomplishing this objective, the following important requirements must be met: (1) The process must be heated significantly above room temperature to speed the dissolution of the resin in the solvent. (2) The heating medium must be heated water because of the flammability of the solvents involved in the process.
