Hi, Bindu.

Black oxide (with wax or oil) is usually a final finish. Phosphatizing is usually for surfaces which will be painted.

However, if you are talking about the internal parts of a pump, they are sometimes phosphatized for oil retention. Picture the parts during initial startup or after a prolonged downtime . . . phosphatizing can prevent the galling of metal to metal contact.
