Italian term or phrase: elemento di chiusura
"Preferibilmente, detta camera è ricavata in un elemento di chiusura del tubo calibrato.."

Do they simply mean a closing element (of unspecified type), or is there a specific term, such as tap, valve etc.

Unfortunately there is no more context, and since this is a patent application, they may want to leave it deliberately vague.

Any suggestions?
