Claim 1 is directed to an apparatus. As such, the limitations in claim 1 directed to the operating conditions within the apparatus are only meaningful to the extent they serve to differentiate the claimed apparatus structure from the prior art apparatus structure. See Burr v. Duryee, 68 U.S. 531, 570 (1863) ("A machine is a concrete thing, consisting of parts, or of certain devices and combination of devices."); In re Gardiner, 171 F.2d 313, 315-16 ( CCP A 1948) ("It is trite to state that the patentability of apparatus claims must be shown in the structure claimed and not merely upon a use, function, or result thereof."); In re Casey, 370 F.2d 576, 580 (CCPA 1967) ("The claims in issue call for an apparatus or machine, viz. a tape dispensing machine. The manner or method in which such machine is to be utilized is not germane to the issue of patentability of the machine itself."); In re Hack, 245 F.2d 246, 248 (CCPA 1957) ("These cases are merely expressive of the principle that the grant of a patent on a composition or machine cannot be predicated on a new use of that machine or composition.").

Appellants do not point to any distinction between the structure set forth in claim 1 and that of Hibner. A recitation with respect to the manner in which a claimed apparatus is intended to be employed, as is the limitation “wherein actuation of the motor drive assembly causes the inner tube to rotate at a speed of at least about 3000 rotations per minute, and to oscillate translationally at a rate of about 1.5 to about 4 cycles per second,” does not differentiate the claimed apparatus from a prior art apparatus satisfying the structural limitations claimed. See, e.g., In re Yanush, 477 F.2d 958, 959 (CCPA 1973) (“Appellant’s use limitation does not impart a structural feature different from those of the prior art. . . . Whether a vibrator is operated gently to settle materials in a mold or more forcefully to ‘hammer’ them is a process limitation which does not limit or define the claimed apparatus.”); In re Casey, 370 F.2d 576, 579—80 (CCPA 1967).

A device claim “cannot properly be allowed unless [it] include[s] structural limitations defining invention over the prior art.” In re Twomey, 218 F.2d 593, 596 (CCPA 1955).
