Default Anybody know what this thing is?

My company just got a new big ol' brew setup. It came with this thing, which looks like it would be used for a grav readings, but there aren't any holes in it for beer inputs. Any of you pro folks know what its for?

Do they offer really expensive courses and accreditation for using it correctly?

If that's the case it is a revenue generator.

Need more photos. Looks like a cooling tower to me. But the handle makes me think otherwise.
