Default Permeate line connection?

I have two 4" membranes in series in one monster vessel, vertical mount, what end can I connect the permeate line to, sap in feed end or concentrate out feed end, or doesn't it matter. It's connected to the concentrate out feed end now.

Correct, while the in and out for sap and concentrate must be on opposite ends, the permeat can tie to either end. Even if you have 2 or 3 membranes, it can be drawn off the first housing but the 2 must be plumbed to carry the permeate from one to the other membrane housing. The sap and concentrate connect to the space outside the membrane and the permeate connects to the center of the membrane.

The sap and concentrate connect to the space outside the membrane and the permeate connects to the hollow center of the membrane.
