MPXV7002 Pressure Sensor in Hostile Environment

I would like to use a MPXV7002 to monitor blocked outlet conditions on a condensing water heater. The exhaust will have combustion byproducts such as CO, CO2, NOx, etc.  Will this significantly degrade the life of the product?  The Datasheet simply states


"The MPXV7002 series pressure sensor operating


characteristics, and internal reliability and qualification tests


are based on use of dry air as the pressure media. Media,


other than dry air, may have adverse effects on sensor


performance and long-term reliability. Contact the factory for


information regarding media compatibility in your application."


Thanks in Advance
