disagree  xxxBourth: The body would be the casting without its internals (valve, spindle, handle, stuffing, etc.)//Yeah, well, I'm working on it. Unfortunately I have things like clients to see to too.

  -> If you don't like the word "body" you could use a word like "unit". Perhaps you could suggest something better?

agree  Craig Macdonald: I like "faucet unit" in this case

tap vs tap assembly


Explanation:
Turn it round so your "robinet" is a "tap assembly". Then your "cellule" can be a "tap" (or whichever word suits your target language variant).

C'est un robinet (tap assy) qui peut se raccorder à la tuyauterie avec divers pièces de raccordement.
- des embouts à souder (à gauche du dessin)
- des embouts à brides (à droite)
Donc ce qui est désigné par "cellule" (tap) c'est le robinet (tap assy) sans ses éléments de raccordements

Actually I think tap/valve assembly would normally be the tap/valve body plus its internals. Things like its tail connection system would be separate. I think the manner of dividing this valve into "cellule" and "robinet" is wholly artificial. It would be more "English" in my opinion to have:
- tap body (the empty "hull" which receives washer, spindle and bonnet)
- tap assembly (all the above)
- tap assembly with auxiliaries, or "complete tap assembly" (tap assy, complete) (all the above plus connecting systems).

On modern taps you will be able to get to the washer which will be attached to a SPINDLE THAT GOES INTO THE TAP BODY. On older style taps you will first ...

BODY The principle pressure containing part of a valve in which the closure element and seats are located.
BONNET The top part of a valve, attached to the body, which contains the packing gland, guides the stem, and adapts to extensions or operators.
Had to include this one for a laugh:
