Default Flowmeters for ro membranes

I am going to put flow meters on each one of my membranes.They are 4" by 40" and I am running three membranes. My question is- what range in Gpm or Gph should I buy to put on these membranes. I am using only one flow meter at the distillate discharge right now and would be more comfortable knowing how each individual membrane is performing.Any ideas would be appreciated.

I would assume the flow is maybe 250 GPH total through each of the 4X40 membrane=so a 2.5GPH concentrate and a 5 GPH permeate flow meter would handle a single application. So you would need (3) 5 GPM flow meters for the 3 vessels permeate discharge.

Thanks Kevin, 5 gallons per minute on the permeate discharge will be the ones I will add on.
