My Philips Air Purifier contains standalone filters

Standalone Filters Indication

My Philips Air Purifier contains a cylindrical filter

Pre-filter is the filter surface (indicated as D in the image below) of a cylindrical filter. When filter cleaning alert (Figure 1) displays on the screen, clean the filter surface with a vacuum cleaner.
