Although much larger in total capacity, scavenge pumps are usually constructed in the same manner as pressure pumps. Engines are generally provided with several scavenge pumps to drain oil from various parts of the engine. Often such a pump shares the same housing as the pressure pump. These pumps are used to draw the oil from the sumps at the bearings, accessory gearbox housings, and other drainage points and return the oil back to the tank.
