I’m not certain, but I believe this is a “digester” vessel for a paper mill.  These pressure vessels are heated and pressurized to “cook” the lignin out of the wood to make paper pulp.

that is just spectacular! I like the mill markings on the tank too; I don't
think I've seen that before on that type of load.
