Abstract: The present invention relates to a flap valve device and a regulation assembly comprising such devices. A pivoting flap valve device has a flap body substantially in the form of a disc mounted on a support and control axle, for the regulation of the circulation of a fluid, particularly a liquid, between an upstream conduit portion and a downstream conduit portion. The flap body (2) is mounted centered on the axle (3), in that the two conduit portions (4 and 5) are axially offset relative to each other and in that the internal surfaces (7, 7′) of the opposed offsets resulting from the axial offset or non-alignment of the portions (4 and 5) constitute bearing surfaces (7, 7′) for two complementary seat portions (6, 6′) for the flap body (2), located on opposite sides of the axle (3) carrying the flap body (2).
