Probably best to contact them IMO and ask about availability, cost and size.

My experience of very high pressure cylinders is a little out of date but they were all used in purely industrial capacities. 350/450/600 BAR systems used as power sources/accumulators to allow high demand short duration loads whilst a relatively small compressor would then recharge them.

Typically these would be multi-cylinder set ups using 50 litre "tanks" in banks, I can't recall seeing small capacity (12 ltr and smaller) cylinders with WP > 300BAR.

Some dive shops have a similar accumulator set up for recharging, and I suspect the 340 BAR they reference is their compressor max output?
