Feed-through capacitors with a value of 10 μF are made so that they can be used in RFI/EMI test setups like MIL-STD-461A/462A. Now, many other standards, such as RTCA DO-160G, require them to be used. In this particular application, the capacitor offers a low RF impedance across the power supply. So, a current probe can be used to accurately measure the electromagnetic interference (EMI) currents made by the device being tested.
In accordance with line impedance stabilization networks, the feed-thru capacitor is applied to provide supplemental filtering for the signal. The 10 F feed-through capacitor can also be put in the wall of a shielded enclosure or equipment cabinet to act as a power-line filter. The capacitor has a good insertion loss and doesn't have the problem of power current saturation that other filters with toroidal inductors do.

Com-Power feed-thru capacitors are very reliable and made out of tough materials. They are used in many screen rooms and other places.
The power current of 100 amps will be able to pass through the threaded feed-through stud without causing any heating or voltage loss. To meet safety rules, a bleeder resistor is put inside the capacitors. This resistor allows the capacitors to drain when the power is turned off.
