I don't see a problem as long as it has the proper rating. The maxi fuse is generally a heavy duty usually available from 20 to 80 amps, and the standard ATC fuses range from 1 to 40 amps, so 30 amp is closer to the top of the range.
Both fuses have the same descriptions (fast acting, 1kA interrupting rating) in the Bussmann fuse catalog. Both have enclosed housings to protect from sparks.
In-line holders for maxi fuses are listed in the Bussmann catalog, but I've never seen them at any local stores. That's the reason I went with the ATC fuse and holder. Been using it for 4 years with no problem.
