Eight years of intensive research backs the development of the WorldKlass IR Canisters™

The product was developed by a team of American scientists under the direction of Dr. Albert C. Wey, whose experience includes work at aerospace giant Pratt and Whitney and NASA, developing methods to test ceramic ball bearings used in the main engines of U.S. Space Shuttle projects. Dr. Wey's background in electro-physics, electromagnetic waves, applied optics and quantum mechanics led him to examine ceramic infrared emissions.

Learning and becoming intrigued by a ceramic material that emitted far-infrared rays (FIR), Dr. Wey began scientific examination and testing of ceramic infrared emissions.

He concluded that some ceramics, consisting of transition metal oxides, could emit photons in the mid- and far-infrared zone. After exhaustive research and applying molecular vibrational energy theories from the 1930s to his research, Dr. Wey wondered if he could find a broadband IR emitter covering the 1-14 pjm wavelength range that would have a method for increasing combustion efficiency to improve engine performance. He referred to research completed in Japan to select specific transition metal oxides to make a ceramic composite that emits photons in the desired 3-14 pjm wavelength band.

From 1999 to 2001, Dr. Wey completed a prototype which showed a substantial improvement in fuel economy and a reduction in emissions during preliminary testing. The following case studies represent several years of product development, laboratory research, and real world testing.
