You could also choose the cheap-ass solution of simply flattening the pipe and welding it shut.
I am not sure how this will affect the pipe's strength though.
Even if some of the chamber volume is lost this way, you still have enough anyways.

Of course, if you found a pressure vessel large enough to hack up for these purposes.... Why not just use that pressure vessel?
