Workers in desalination plants inhaling the steam (Inhaling vapors while observing Sawm)

Question 52: I work in the General Corporation for Water Desalination. We observe Sawm (Fast) during Ramadaan while we are working,but we are surrounded by steam in the plant where we work. As we often inhale the steam, does this affect the validity of our Sawm? Are we supposed to make up for the days in which we have inhaled the steam while observing Sawm (whether as an obligatory or supererogatory act of worship)? Are we required to pay Sadaqah (voluntary charity) for every day of inhaling steam at work while observing Sawm?
