English term or phrase: Pencil Cylinder
Addendum to my previous request.
My client produces armatures/fittings,as well as pressure relief valves, rupture disks and shut-off valves for gas cylinders.
Now he is talking about 10 ml and 30 ml welded pencil cylinders and 27.59 bar and 344.8 bar cylinders, with test pressures of 41.3 bar and 517 bar respectively.
The answer of Stiftzylinder für Schlösser would definitely not fit here.

Grading comment
When I first saw the answer "Stiftzylinder" and the reference to locks,
I thought that this was wrong, since my client is not in the
lock business. But given your references and your explanations,
also the one from Mr. Wiman, I have to admit that my first impression
was wrong.
Thank you both very much for your help.
