I would suggest you look in medical supply catalogs or web sites.  I
remember many years ago seeing very large syringes used to empty the
contents of a person's stomach ("having your stomach pumped").  As I
recall, these were about 300 ml in capacity, and you may be able to
find even larger sizes.  I hope this helps,
