Thermostatic mixing valve

Water safety in buildings, published by the World Health Organization in 2011, defines thermostatic mixing valves as: ‘Tempering valves that are typically temperature-activated. Used to mix hot and cold water to achieve a predetermined outlet temperature, and that are fitted between the water heater and the point of use to control the distribution temperature. Slightly different temperature ranges are used in some countries.’
