Definitions for "Iron"
Iron is an essential constituent of hemoglobin, cytochrome, and other components of respiratory enzyme systems; its chief functions are in the transport of oxygen to tissues (in hemoglobin) and in cellular oxidation mechanisms. Dietary sources include muscle meats, eggs, grains, and certain vegetables and fruits. Depletion of iron stores may result in iron-deficiency anemia . Excessive consumption of iron causes iron poisoning (see under poisoning).
Essential in hemoglobin formation, it is essential to life. Iron is also present in enzymes that permit cellular respiration to occur. It plays a role in the nutrition of epithelial tissues as well. Used to treat some forms of anemia.
an essential mineral necessary for hemoglobin in red blood cells to carry oxygen and energy metabolism and prevents anemia. Particularly critical to motor and mental development during infancy, an iron deficiency can adversely affect the ability to learn and understand new information and may result in poor concentration and attention span. Though adult menopausal women require more iron in their diet than men, studies have shown that most individuals are deficient in iron. Iron overdose in children is the leading cause of chemical toxicity in children. The current RDA is 18 mg per day. For more detailed information, see Iron in our Nutritional Focus section. You can find more information and obtain iron in our Nutri-Vite(tm) Mega Minerals.
The most common and most useful metallic element, being of almost universal occurrence, usually in the form of an oxide (as hematite, magnetite, etc.), or a hydrous oxide (as limonite, turgite, etc.). It is reduced on an enormous scale in three principal forms; viz., cast iron, steel, and wrought iron. Iron usually appears dark brown, from oxidation or impurity, but when pure, or on a fresh surface, is a gray or white metal. It is easily oxidized (rusted) by moisture, and is attacked by many corrosive agents. Symbol Fe (Latin Ferrum). Atomic number 26, atomic weight 55.847. Specific gravity, pure iron, 7.86; cast iron, 7.1. In magnetic properties, it is superior to all other substances.
An instrument or utensil made of iron; -- chiefly in composition; as, a flatiron, a smoothing iron, etc.

These substances naturally occur at low levels in the water and may be responsible for taste and staining problems with water. They are measured in milligrams per litre (mg/L).
Except in a few sections, this impurity in the boiler water is not troublesome.
Iron concentration in effluent is commonly regulated because it affects the appearance and taste of water and because it readily oxidizes to the ferric (Fe+3) form, which precipitates and causes rust stains. The iron in photographic effluent is not generally a problem because it is usually present only in the form of stable iron complexes.
