If you mean this:
 <meta name="Revisit-After" content="X Days">
then yes, that what it sounds like it should be doing.

I'd be skeptical about how widely used it is as, AFAIK, most search
engines actually check pages on a regular basis to see if the content
has changed anyway. I would think you can probably remove it from the
page safely.
