  -> Thank you, Simona. I have just noticed that I should have suggested 'two or three-way valves', i.e., in plural form.

agree  Anjo Sterringa: simple!the term just indicates the type of valve used, not the controls on it.

  -> Actually, these valves are used to CONTROL temperatures, as they sometimes control the flow or the direction of fluids in certain systems, not to measure them. My apologies to everyone.
