I would be more inclined to say if you have stray current issues and electrolysis you should look closer to source and ensure your equipment grounding conductors and your service's bonding coneections are correct and intact.
Water and steel pipe are excellent conductors and if your motors, etc. have the proper equipment grounds a bonding strap for the boiler shell shouldn't be necessary but additional bonding will never hurt.
: hi! is it necessary to ground the steam boiler shell, as well as the control panel? does the shell need a differenet grounding and if so, why??? i have encountered steam boilers only few months in service, with electrolysis on many tubes, with no obvious reason. could it be due to absence of boiler body grounding? does water synthesis and/or conductivity have anything to do with it? thanks!!!
