It is widely used in oilfield drilling mud system, as trip pump, measurement pump, charging pump, mixing pump, feeding pump. It can be used together with mixing hopper as a mixing unit, with trip tank as a trip pump/measurement pump, with mud pump as charging pump for mud pump, or as a transfer pump.
