The support (11) consists of two mobile trays (16) mutually linked by a rod (17), each tray consisting of a box (26) whereof the upper side is provided with small holes (27) cooperating with the suction intake orifices (28). The means (14) for separating the document pages consist of suction means (34), displaced by the combination of a vertical movement and a horizontal movement, consisting of the perforated recessed element (36) provided with a diaphragm (37). Said perforated element (36) is provided with holes (38) and the diaphragm (37) comprises two mobile parts for orienting the direction of the suction flow and modify its flow rate and its speed. Said suction means (34) also comprise mobile closure means (44) for longitudinally delimiting the suction surface.
