Bit OT but anyhow if its big, like 6 foot canister about 1 meter diameter with fins and is connected in series with the line, its likely a voltage regulator (just a simple auto tap changing transformer to keep line volts within range) Usually mounted 1 per pole as they are pretty big.

Where you see 3 or 4 little cans mounted around a transformer they are some form of PF correction device.
