I believe that's typically 60 to 90 =B0F (15 to 32 =B0C).

The Guardian tempering units that we sell have a bimetallic thermostat  

that senses the incoming water temperature and automatically blends  
the water to 85 =B0F (29 =B0C) with a temperature limit stop of 90 =B0F 
=B0C).  They use a dial thermometer on the outlet to monitor the  
temperature of the delivered water and include a fail safe mechanism.  

In the event of restriction or failure of the hot water supply, an  
internal bypass allows the valve to deliver cold water In event of  
loss of cold water supply, the valve will close and not deliver water.

For a spec sheet discussing these valves see, for example, 
  and select the spec sheet or operating instruction sheet link in the  

last paragraph of the product description.

Disclaimer: We are just one of many vendors for such items, which is  
why I know about these.
