I don't think it is possible to force any application to use more memory than it was designed to do.  Your server seems to have adequate RAM so increasing that is unlikely to have much impact.  You don't say what processor the server has but a faster one just might offer some benefit.

Perhaps scaling out the searches would help.  There's a reference at:-
