Prominent automotive air conditioning and transport refrigeration company Electric Station Climatisation (ESC) released their new range of VESNA refrigeration systems that use Unicla UP series compressors.

ESC was established in 1967 and has distributed Unicla for many years. Managing Director Eric Patel says he is very excited about this new VESNA product range and the opportunity to use Unicla on the engine applications.

The Unicla team met with ESC sales representatives Valeria Paioli and Jerome Perrot who provided an extensive overview of the VESNA unit.

The system has innovations such as twin oil return system for both engine and standby compressors, all in one bulkhead fitting for ease of installation of hose connections, and removable evaporator panels for easy access to service ports and TXV.

The engine compressor is a Unicla UP150 using POE oil which uses the 200 degree swivel fittings so the Burgaflex hose fittings can be easily positioned away from the radiator hoses and other engine components.
