A Little About Us

When, Where, & Why of Muth Pump

Muth Pump is the inventor of the FARR Plunger. The FARR Plunger was the first and by far still the best solution for SAND and GAS LOCKING issues in Rod Pumps.

We developed the FARR Plunger as a response to my client’s Artificial Lift needs for a SAND solution in their Rod Pumped wells. This plunger handles FRAC Sand, Coal Fines and Heavy Oil. It reduces stuck pump issues and drastically reduces Pulling Rig Jobs! We have also developed a solution for Gas Locking issues.

Rod Pumps are the most cost effective pumping solution; the FARR Plunger makes them a superior pumping solution by extending the pumping system life cycle 200% - 500%.

We have assisted Oil Producers all over the globe from California to Indonesia. Our clients such as: AERA, CVX, ConocoPhillips, PERTAMINA, Pemex, PDVSA, EnerVest, OXY, Shell Oil and Gas, ExxonMobil, Esso and many others enjoy increased production and lower operating costs.

William P Evans - Business Development Manager

Well, Let me tell you a little something about that Well

Mr. William P Evans is clocking in at a solid 22 years of professional oil & gas experience, knows his way inside, outside, updside and backside of a well. He’s been involved with all the intricicies that go into having just one single well run smooth over the course of its life. He understands the immense costs associated with preserving a wells production volume, he understands the dynamics of artificial lift systems, hydraulics and most importantly Pumps! Bottom line is Bill understands intimately the physical and emotional toll a well and it’s production volume or lack there of can take on a person.

With that said, Muth Pump and Bill are very serious about saving your pump life as much as we are about saving you money and now we have an experienced advocate to preach it from the mountain tops. We’re really excited for what business opportunities lie ahead as Bill navigates his way through the dunes just in time to save you from yet another sand induced melt down.
