  • Publication number: 20210093745
    Abstract: Provided is a photocatalytic device capable of further enhancing an effect by a photocatalyst and also efficiently dissipating heat emitted from a light applying portion, and capable of further enhancing the purification effect by increase of a light amount. In the photocatalytic device, both end portions of a housing in the lateral direction are in contact with an upper face of a photocatalyst filter to support the photocatalyst filter, and form upper-side edge portions for openings. A center portion of the housing is distant from the photocatalyst filter in an upward direction. Tilted portions are positioned in regions between both the end portions and the center portion. A lower-side inner wall of the housing supports the photocatalyst filter, and forms lower-side edge portions for the openings. A light applying portion is disposed on a lower face of the center portion of the upper-side inner wall.
