How Do I See Through A Combo Of Steam And Cold Air?

Ok here is a scenario I am interested in comments or feedback.

Scenario: Outdoor industrial area (Class 1, Division 2), extreme cold ambient air temperatures, heavy steam in area obscuring equipment.

Goal: Monitoring equipment within steam covered environment most likely from a camera mounted a distance away from the steam environment.

Challanges: 1) Class 1 Division 2 area classification, 2) Large temperature gradients within air due to the steam in environment.
