The Definitive Deodorant Company

The Definitive Deodorant Company

The Definitive Deodorant Company specializes in manufacturing odor neutralizers for industrial, and commercial use. The industrial version of FORMULA 105TM has been used nearly 30 years at locations where effective odor control and safety concerns are important. This unscented product is superior to chemicals such as sodium hypochlorite and chlorine dioxide in effectiveness, safety and cost. Meat packing and rendering plants use it in machinery that operates at high temperatures. They also use it in wastewater lagoons where it benefits aerobic bacteria essential for waste breakdown. Safe for equipment, safe for lagoons.

For industrial wastewater treatment FORMULA 105 effectively and safely controls industrial wastewater odor in sludge and sewage, lift stations, air scrubbers and wastewater lagoons without masking agents or VOC emissions. Customers report reduction of suspended solids (saving on sewage up-charges), and accelerated flocculation of metal sludge. 

This odor control product also enhances aerobic bacteria in lagoons. FORMULA 105 is a biodegradable product, suitable for sludge that is land applied. It can be used in recycled water. Safe for employees and equipment, FORMULA 105 is non-toxic, non-corrosive, and not harmful to the environment. 

This concentrate needs only a chemical metering pump to inject into the water system where it remains. There are no emissions into the atmosphere. 

  • EFFECTIVE wastewater odor neutralizer 

  • ELIMINATES odor in wastewater, sludge, air scrubbers, lift stations 

  • REDUCES Hydrogen Sulfide odor without harming bacteria

  • REDUCES total suspended solids with regular use 

  • SAFE for people and equipment; not harmful to the environment; biodegradable, non-toxic 

  • NO EMISSIONS into the atmosphere; remains in the wastewater system 

  • ENHANCES aerobic bacteria in lagoons, resulting in more vigorous colonies, and waste digestion 

  • DECREASED usage in lagoons is typical over time 

  • NO EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT needed; uses a simple chemical metering pump

Designed to neutralize water-borne odors, FORMULA 105 is suitable for a variety of industrial applications. We believe you will find the effectiveness, environmental safety, human safety and cost to be superior to other products used in deodorizing. This product has been especially useful for plants near residential areas where neutralizing odors (not odor masking) is a priority.

FORMULA 105 Industrial has a great affinity for suspended solids and vapors in water, and complexes with them in such a manner as to control their ability to create odor. This product has been used for many years to eliminate odors in wastewater lagoons of agricultural and chemical plants, in air scrubbing equipment, in sludge, and has been successfully used for treating odors from sewage, plants producing sulfur odor, and wastewater containing zirconium sediment, among other things.


Neutralizes water based odors without perfumes, masking agents, oxidizers. No chlorine-based products or other dangerous volatile organic compounds. FORMULA 105remains within the system into which it is injected--doesn’t migrate into the atmosphere. This product is effective in small amounts. As a rule of thumb, we recommend 1 part of FORMULA 105 per 100 parts suspended solids and vapors in water (1:100). Product is most effective when agitation is present to ensure dispersion to all areas of containment ponds, lagoons. Usage in air scrubbers is determined by on-site tests. 


FORMULA 105 Industrial has been tested by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (one of the nation’s most environmentally stringent) and judged “not harmful to the environment”. Ideal for lagoons where aerobic bacteria are present; does not harm bacteria’s ability to digest solids. FORMULA 105 is non-carcinogenic and biodegradable in water. Suitable for land application when used in wastewater where that is permissible. Accepted by the USDA for use in inedible processing areas. 


FORMULA 105 is non-corrosive, non-volatile, non-toxic. It does not burn or irritate skin, eyes, or breathing passages. If product comes in contact with skin, simply wipe off with paper towel, then wash with soap and water. If in eyes, flush with water. 


Does not promote machinery wear and breakdown, unlike some caustic and corrosive oxidizers, even in equipment operating at high temperatures. FORMULA 105 does not promote foaming. Unlike some products sold for odor control, no additional acids or other chemicals are required to alter pH. No additional expensive equipment needed to inject FORMULA 105 into wastewater system, just a simple chemical metering pump.

When used to deodorize a zirconium plant’s wastewater, FORMULA 105 accelerated the flocculation of heavy metal sediment. In wastewater with aerobic bacteria, this product seems to assist bacteria. When FORMULA 105 combines with suspended solids, it not only reduces their ability to create odor, it also appears to reduce their appetite for dissolved oxygen in water. This leaves more oxygen for bacteria in the water. The bacteria become more vigorous, and digest waste more efficiently.


Unlike some products often used, FORMULA 105 was designed to neutralize odor, and relatively small amounts are required. This product is sold in 55 gallon drums, not tank loads. Since less is required, this can mean a savings in storage space, time and manpower. Often it means a savings in money. The amount effective for odor control may well cost less overall.

FORMULA 105 is safe for your employees and equipment. This non-corrosive product will not contribute to machinery wear or breakdown.
