Thermal improvements to domestic tap

We have designed a brass boiling water (water at 100C) dispenser that is essentially a variation of a domestic tap (faucet) (water about 60C maximum). When the tap is switched on, boiling water flows through the tap via a mixing chamber and out of the spout in the conventional way. We have attempted to design in features that will minimise the surface temperature to avoid the risk of burns to the user from touching the metal work, but at the prototype stage we are finding the surface temperature is still higher than we would like.

The project is therefore to take the existing design and recommend improvements that will reduce the surface temperature. The design is broadly constrained in terms of general features, so we want to find the simplest changes that will make the greatest difference.

We would expect the answer to be based on some formal type of computational thermal calculations, but are really open to any practical solutions that can be shown to work. An ideal solution would indicate the current expected performance from the existing design (either in termal of Watts of thermal losses, or surface temperature) and the equivalent measures from the proposed design as amended. Indetification of the key heat transfer routes is obvisouly a key step in the solution.

I can supply the design in solidworks or other format.
