StormWarden and Pump Control Panel

StormWarden: An Overview

At Aline Pumps, we not only provide a wide range of fire pumps, but we also offer a range of power backup systems, specifically suited to providing alternate power to submersible systems. Flooded basements due to a power outage (thus disabling the pump systems) are one of the primary causes of environmental vehicle damage.

The Aline StormWarden system provides a solution to this issue providing automatic cut-in power, ensuring your assets stay safe and functional:

  • Lift wells
  • Wine cellars
  • Basement car parks
  • Garages
  • Workshops
  • Below ground storage
  • Entertainment areas

The range of StormWarden Systems is matched with our range of submersible stormwater pumps to ensure your property and contents are protected, all the time, every time.

The StormWarden Battery Backup System

When mains power fails, standard stormwater pump systems will cease to function. To prevent this, Aline stocks a specifically designed battery backup system called StormWarden®. The battery backup system is a packaged unit incorporating an inverter with a bank of batteries to provide electric power for stormwater systems in the event of mains power failure. A purpose-built control unit detects a power failure and the system automatically switches supply to the pump set to battery power until the mains power is restored. The systems are available in a range of sizes to cater to specific requirements, depending on pump size and required standalone runtime.

The intelligent controller provides continuous monitoring of mains power and automatically switches to battery power in the event of a mains power failure. It then automatically reverts to mains power and begins recharging the batteries when the power supply is restored.
