Default Kegging Sour beers

Just started kegging my Sour & Brett beers a while back and was wondering if anyone has any issue with infection due to a shared CO2 tank? I have separate equipment all the way up to my manifold & use a check valve. Haven't had any issues but I noticed some crap in my sour side gas line and wondered just how far the bugs would travel?

Primary: Lambic, Flanders Red,

Secondary: Orange Cinnamon Metheglin, Black Cherry Melomel.

Bottled:Imperial Chocolate Coconut Porter, Pinot Noir, Strong Dark Belgian, Hard Lemonade, Black Hops IPA. Dunkelwiezen, Old Rasputin Clone, 1554 black ale clone, BarleyWine

Keg, Rye IPA, Chocolate Coconut Porter, Apricot ale

I too use all different liquid side components (actually have one tap that's always a sour/brett beer), but use a manifold that feeds gas to both sour and regular beers. I've had no noticeable problems with almost 2 years of use.
