What is this object?

I looked like the water pipe passed right through this object.

The outer white shell was styrene plastic and held on by velcro. When I removed it, I saw a cylinder of dense, hard foam and no obvious way of dismantling it further.

A small multi-conductor cable passed from the heat pump into this foam.

If it's a descaler, why encase it in foam?

My hunch is that the foam is there to provide thermal insulation. But if so, why?

Maybe there's a temperature sensor in there being insulated by the foam?

Possibly. But if they wanted to know the temperature of the incoming water, why not just put an internal sensor in the unit? Why measure it a foot outside the unit? And why the monster foam insulation?
