Heat exchanger for a wood stove

i bought a new home and it has an older cast iron wood stove with closing doors. along with it came a fireplace accessory heat exchanger.

my question is where do i put the heat exchanger?
can i put it on top of the stove where it gets really warm?

as i understand it; Heat Exchangers are typically used to heat water for other uses. Maybe I'm wrong as the application....here is a link that may help you....http://www.motherearthnews.com/do-it...r-heating.aspx

You could be talking about anyone of dozens of things.
Got a picture of it or a website?
If there's a name on it why not Google it and see what the manufacturer suggest?
