Re: Chlorine Dioxide odor control

The gas may not be corrosive, not sure about that, but in liquid form we spent literally millions on titanium fittings and vessels because nothing else would survive.

Since 'Chlorine' has become a bleaching pariah in industry, most bleached pulps now use a combination of ClO2 and oxygen.

It's a nasty gas, no doubt, and few living things will survive exposure to it.
