I dont know what a ferrite choke is. It looked like the ones ive put in MRIs.

I don't know if it matters but it was for fire alarm.

I don't know what filters go in an MRI.

This is a style of ferite choke:

The wire goes through it and it knocks out high frequency signals.

Great looking pipe work. At least you know in your own mind what a sweet accomplishment that was even though no one else will.

I think that's the point of using them. They don't come apart.

MRI rooms use RF filters which employ some chokes.
