Can effervescent tablet corrode insulated water bottle?

It's said that the effervescent tablet is acidic and will corrode the insulated water bottle, and there's another saying that the bubble tablet of the insulated water bottle is easy to cause explosion, is that true? In fact, the truth is not so. The effervescent tablets can be made in insulated water bottles. Effervescent tablet is a kind of effervescent tablet containing sodium bicarbonate and organic acid, which can release a lot of carbon dioxide when encountering water. And the insulated water bottle directly contacts with the liquid is the inner tank, which is generally composed of stainless steel, but also part of the ceramic or other materials.

Many people think that stainless steel is an alloy, and the effervescent tablet contains organic acid, which will corrode the alloy and cause damage to the insulated water bottle. However, at present, the stainless steel used for insulated water bottle on the market is 304 stainless steel. This stainless steel has good corrosion resistance. The organic acids in the effervescent tablets are all weak acids, and the content is less, which will not pose a threat to the corrosion-resistant 304 stainless steel. Secondly, the chemical reaction between organic acid and alloy needs a certain reaction time, but we don't use the insulated water bottle effervescent tablet for a long time, and the contact time between the two is short. Therefore, as long as the use of qualified insulated water bottle, it will not have any impact on the insulated water bottle.
